Lela Newell, a recent graduate of Clemson University, joined our team in July as our newest Account Manager. Lela graduated Cum Laude from Clemson with a 3.6 GPA and a major in Communication Studies and a double minor in Spanish and Social Sciences.
Prior to joining ICND, she completed three internships that allowed her to gain experience in communications, public relations and marketing. At Clemson, she interned for the Division of Student Affairs in their publications office for a year and assisted the VP of Student Affairs by writing speeches, developing creative content, producing the annual report and managing all social media accounts. Upon graduating, she held two internships in Asheville, NC as a PR & Marketing intern for WNC Magazine and a Communications intern for Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project. Both allowed her to gain further experience while fine tuning her skills prior to becoming an Account Manager at ICND.
