Meet the MAKER Intern: Gaby Riggs

Marketing Intern

Help us welcome the newest member of the MAKE team, Gaby! She’s joining us this summer as a copywriting intern. Gaby is originally from Kansas City, Kansas and is happy to be back close to home in a city with ample places to eat!

Gaby graduated from Kansas State University (go ‘cats) with a major in marketing and a focus in international business. Previously she’s interned with an advertising agency and local fashion start-up, which helps her write, blog, and post on social on behalf of the MAKE brand. She’s foot-tapping, wiggling in her seat excited to learn more about digital marketing–of course!

When she’s not working, she’s probably formulating a political opinion or watching the newest Marvel film. She likes long walks through the park with her rowdy golden retriever, Theo, and she can’t go more than a day without a Coca-Cola. Gaby’s currently patiently awaiting the arrival of the newest Game of Thrones season, but she’s passing the time by getting reacquainted with Kansas City drink specials and happy hours.

You can find her reminiscing over her national park camping trip and counting down the days until football season.
