Addie Stiff - Field Specialist at The Social LightsAddie Stiff

“As a student majoring in entrepreneurship, I’m very excited to start working and learning with The Social Lights. It’s not only inspiring to hear about their journey as young entrepreneurs, but it’s also an honor to become a part of it. I was enthralled to accept the position of Collegiate Field Specialist!”

Addie declared her major last spring and couldn’t be more happy with her decision. She says, “I have always enjoyed coming up with new business ideas and pitches, so it’s quite perfect.” Outside of school, when she has time, of course, she’s quite the talented artist and DIY-er. Addie says, “This summer I bought a $6.00 desk from Goodwill and gave it a total remodel. My friends always ask me where I bought it and never believe me once I tell them my secret.”

As you can imagine, Addie is a bit addicted to Pinterest and HGTV. She says, “When I’m not occupied with a project, I enjoy doing what most 21 year-olds enjoy doing, going to bars and restaurants! I love checking out new places within the metro-area – I always run into an awesome new beer or tasty burger.”

Addie’s excited to check out many new places with The Social Lights and study how college students are using social media in order to come up with creative collegiate campaigns! We are very excited to have Addie on the team, and it sounds like she’s equally excited, ” I’m pumped for what’s ahead!”
