Hello everyone, my name is Adrienne Akre and I’m the newest intern here at gap intelligence! I’m excited to be here and looking forward to sinking my teeth into this PR thing. I just started my final quarter at UCSD, where I am majoring in sociology. I know, it seems strange that I’m a sociologist interning for a marketing intelligence company, but after spending four years in the field, I’ve decided to give sociology a break.

So basically, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do in life.

I found gap through UCSD’s Academic Internship Program and instantly thought it sounded like a fantastic opportunity.

I am hoping to learn as much as I can and give as much back to gap as possible.

I was born and raised right here in San Diego. After living in Marin County up in Northern California for a year, I realized that my heart was still in SD and I truly am a So-Cal girl. I live in Coronado with my boyfriend, almost six-year-old daughter (wow, time flies), and three crazy dogs.

In my spare time, I like to relax with friends and family and try to get to the beach as much as possible, which is a lot when you live on an island. Much to my boyfriend’s dismay, living in Northern California gave me a taste for Indian food, so don’t be surprised if you catch the faint scent of curry as you pass by me! I’ll make sure to gargle after lunch, though!

Other than that, I’m just so grateful to have been given the opportunity to get my feet wet in the PR and marketing world.

I’m thrilled to be here and hope to get to know everyone at gap very soon!
