Meet The StuartCo Corporate Interns

Meet-New-Employees-1Join us in welcoming our three corporate office interns for the summer,  Lauren Fasching, William Schultz, and Lisa Kittleson. We are thrilled to welcome them to the team!

What is your major? Any minor(s)?  Major: Marketing Minor: Management

What’s the favorite course you’ve taken thus far, and why?  My favorite class thus far is an advanced business communication course I took this past semester. We were able to conduct research to help solve our chosen company’s business problem and provide real life suggestions to help further their success.

Are you going to any concerts/music festivals this summer (and if so, which ones)?  I always try to attend Basilica Block Party in the summer. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be, and why? I would love to travel to South Africa on a mission trip someday. I think it would be a great opportunity to experience a different culture and build lasting memories.

What excites you about your role at StuartCo?  I am very excited to be back for my second summer! I have really enjoyed working in the marketing department and I’m looking forward to spending some time out at One Southdale Place.

What school do you attend? The University of Minnesota – Twin Cities

What year are you entering this fall? Junior Year

What is your major? Any minor(s)? Major: Marketing Minor: Finance and Cultural Studies

What’s the favorite course you’ve taken thus far, and why? My favorite course in college has thus far been “Management: Corporate Ethics”. The overarching reason that I thought so highly of the class was due to the high regard I had for the instructor, Prof. Rand Park. He is an extremely captivating lecturer, a skill that I chalk up to his background in both law and business.

What are your hobbies/extra-curricular activities/interests? I love anything high-intensity and outdoors. I most enjoy downhill skiing/snowboarding, rock climbing, all water sports, running, hiking, biking, etc. I also love music, and am proficient in guitar, piano, drums, Saxophone, bass, and a little recorder from the 4th grade.

What’s your favorite Food? I will eat just about anything with Seafood involved, especially sushi. How do you prefer your coffee? Black coffee or soy latte please.

Are you going to any concerts/music festivals this summer (and if so, which ones)? I will be attending Soundset this May (for the 4th consecutive year) and Lollapalooza in late July (for the 2nd consecutive year).

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be, and why? I would love to visit the Alps before I’m 25 to try out the powder in Europe.

What excites you about your role at StuartCo? I am excited mostly by how many different directions I will be pulled by all the different departments. I love it when I’m doing something new every day, so feel free to pile the projects on my desk!

Lisa Kittleson

LISA KITTLESON

Where do you call ‘home” (hometown)?  Waconia, MN

What school do you attend? Bemidji State University

What year are you entering this fall? Senior Year

What is your major? Any minor(s)? Major: Marketing Communications Minor: Business Administration

What’s the favorite course you’ve taken thus far, and why? Consumer Behavior; our humanly ways of decision-making and process is so interesting—and frankly, quite hilarious at times.

What are your hobbies/extra-curricular activities/interests? At school, I am the President of the Student Alumni Association and I work in the Admissions Office on-campus as a University Ambassador. In my free time I love to be outside, especially spending time on/by the lake. I studied abroad in Europe during the spring of 2014 for 2 months and ever since I’ve returned, I’ve had a bad case of the traveler’s itch…so anytime I can, I will take the opportunity to travel!

What’s your favorite food? Brats, Grapes & Popcorn…but definitely not all together!

How do you prefer your coffee? Carmel-color with hazelnut!

Are you going to any concerts/music festivals this summer (and if so, which ones)? I plan to attend Firefest; a day-long music festival in Cold Spring, MN on Saturday, July 25th! Fun Fact: I have never been to a summer music festival before, so it should be fun!

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be, and why? As stated earlier, I love traveling. But if I could travel anywhere, someday I would love to visit the Philippines and either backpack or take a cruise around Scandinavia! I have thought about and would love to continue onto Grad School abroad somewhere, but we will see what happens…

What excites you about your role at StuartCo? Since learning about StuartCo, I have heard nothing but positive remarks about the team/company. Everyone that I have met so far, have all been nothing but positive and uplifting. I am eager to not only learn about this industry and everything that comes with it itself, but also to experience how a business runs on a day-by-day basis in so many different departments and fields. Also, to learn from such well-educated and knowledgeable mentors, to gain new experiences and take advantage of the opportunities that I can take with me for life. I feel very fortunate to have such an opportunity as this and am willing and eager to learn! I am excited to be here and look forward to getting to know you all and working with you!
