Devanie Heller is just getting started with her career in the marketing communication industry. She has interned with Ideaworks Marketing and the Small Business Development Center at Shippensburg University this past year to gain valuable marketing experience before graduating. Some of her favorite aspects of the marketing industry include research, analytics, and social media. During her free time, she enjoys playing with her puppy Willow, kayaking, painting, and cooking.
Devanie is a graduate of Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her BSBA in Marketing. While in school, she worked part-time as a research intern, was the president of the American Marketing Association, and was actively involved in Beta Gamma Sigma, the exclusive business honor society.
She first heard about AAF NEPA during her internship at Ideaworks Marketing, where she was able to help out with a few things for the AAF club. Devanie helped draft and email invites for the Twenty Minutes and a Wine event last May. At Twenty Minutes and a Wine she networked with some of the current board members about the club. Attending that event was what sparked her interest in joining AAF NEPA and eventually led to her pursuing the events director position. She has always enjoyed being organized, so planning and events is in her nature.
