Posted on: August 1, 2016 | By: Laura Fontanills

Two University of South Florida St. Petersburg journalism students have joined B2 as summer interns to gain experience in the public relations field. Katie Wilcox and Cat Kouretsos are the latest upcoming professionals to take part in B2’s public relations internship program.

Katie and Cat are assisting the B2 team with client work and attaining the knowledge needed to launch their careers.

Katie is a senior at USFSP and will graduate in spring 2017 with her bachelor’s degree in journalism and media studies. This past year, she was named to the Chancellor’s List, an honor awarded to full-time students who maintain a 4.0 GPA during the school year.

Outside of B2, Katie is the PR and Social Media Director for Theatre eXceptional, a local non-profit devoted to theatre for, with, and about adults with disabilities. She also manages social media accounts for the Plaza Beach Resorts on St. Pete Beach.

At B2, Katie is assisting the agency’s account teams with research, writing and reporting for clients such as USAmeriBank, Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts, and Marlow’s Tavern. Katie is also excited to help with SPCA Tampa Bay because she adopted her first “fur baby” from the animal welfare organization last September.
