My name is Haley Morris, and I’m excited to join the Blue Compass team as a Client Support Intern. My first week has been full of learning and getting to know my new coworkers. I can already tell that I’m surrounded by extremely caring and knowledgeable people; they’ve all been welcoming and helpful as I learn the ropes. I’m looking forward to growing professionally and contributing over the next few months!
I am a senior at Drake University, where I’ve spent the last four years as a student-athlete. I will graduate in May with degrees in Marketing and Advertising. I enjoy marketing because it leverages both creative and analytical thinking. I also appreciate the collaborative aspect of agency environments.
Over the past couple years, I’ve worked for a variety of organizations ranging from Drake’s athletic department to small nonprofits to advertising agencies. I’m excited to dig into digital marketing and website design & development at Blue Compass.
Off the Clock
When I’m not at class or in the office, I try to stay active. For the past eighteen years, you could usually find me on the soccer field. I just wrapped up my senior season as Drake Women’s Soccer’s goalkeeper. Now, I’m hoping to spend more time biking and skiing.
I also love to explore new places. Whether it’s finding a new coffee shop in my hometown of Des Moines or traveling across the world, I’m always up for a new experience. Drake’s study abroad program has given me many opportunities to travel and be immersed in different cultures. Last month, I took a course on Global & Team Leadership while in Portugal and Spain. Nothing beats having class while exploring the Iberian coastline or walking the streets of Madrid. I’ve spent time in Thailand, Central Europe, and Mexico for course work in various disciplines.
