As a student at St. Edward’s University, Simmone has been living in Austin for the past three years, but she has lived all over the world — Rhode Island, California, Minnesota, and Australia. As a first generation American, Simmone has dual citizenship in both the U.S. and Australia. Her travels have nourished her interest in the connective quality of communication, sparking her desire to enter the PR field.
As the lead intern at Breakaway PR, Simmone is involved in a range of tasks; she manages Breakaway’s social media accounts, assists in client projects, produces graphics and drafts written materials. She graduates from St. Edward’s University with a B.A. in Communication and concentration in Public Relations & Advertising in December 2020. While at St. Edward’s, she was a member of PRSSA and inducted into the Lambda Pi Eta Communication Honor Society.
Outside of campus and the office, Simmone can be found binge watching her favorite TV shows, attending local art events, or playing with her cat and pup.
