Kaetlyn Hernandez Joins Team Tripepi Smith
Tripepi Smith welcomed Kaetlyn Hernandez to the team as a junior business analyst on September 8, 2020, after bringing her on as an intern on August 3.
“When I first joined the team, I was given resources and training to quickly adapt to Tripepi Smith’s pace and orient to the local government world,” Kaetlyn said. “I have already expanded my skills in marketing and public affairs to a higher standard in a short amount of time. After just a couple weeks on the team, it was clear that being able to join the team full time was going to be a great move.”
Kaetlyn discovered her interest in digital and print media during her time as a marketing and design manager for her alma mater, California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). She later explored her interests while honing her skills in social media and project management in digital and creative marketing internships at NBCUniversal.
“Tripepi Smith gives me license to be creative in an industry that is new to me because Ryder and Nicole foster an environment of learning,” she continued. “It feels good joining a team that values professional and personal growth.”
Kaetlyn earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in entertainment arts with a minor in public relations from CSUF. During her undergraduate career, she held positions as outreach coordinator, event production director and chief communications officer in student government, which led her to a passion for community outreach.
“The team is thrilled to have Kaetlyn aboard,” Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith commented. “She quickly demonstrated her alignment with Tripepi Smith’s culture of innovation and hard work. We are already seeing her add value and deliver across projects. Tripepi Smith continues to aggressively add talent to meet the increased demand we are seeing from clients across all industries.”
