Misi Cooney joined simoneink in June 2015 shortly after graduating from the University in Richmond. Prior to graduating, Misi worked as an intern with the public relations agency RF Binder assisting on client accounts including Talenti Gelato and Dunkin’ Donuts. As an intern Misi developed skills in social media management, pitched targeted reporters in local and national markets, and helped organize and oversee media events. Additionally, Misi spent the summer of 2013 interning with the Meredith Corporation supporting the marketing and sales teams of Everyday with Rachel Ray, Fitness, and EatingWell magazines.
In college, Misi was selected to be a member of University of Richmond’s sophomore scholars in residence program. As a participant in the program Misi coordinated fundraising efforts for a clean water initiative benefiting the microfinance organization, Esperanza International, located in the Dominican Republic.
Misi is excited to begin her public relations career with simoneink assisting Simone, Meg, and Meaghan with administrative and media related efforts. When she’s not in the office you can find her trying out the newest spin studio, going to concerts and looking for the perfect record to add to her vinyl collection, or visiting friends and family in sunny Sarasota. A DC native, Misi feels right home returning to the area after college!
