Molly Lockwood Joins Team TS
Tripepi Smith welcomed Molly Lockwood to the firm as a Junior Business Analyst, effective May 18, 2020.
“The passion and energy of my new colleagues has been apparent since my very first minute on the job,” said Molly. “I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic team here at Tripepi Smith, and look forward to applying my creative and analytical skills to serve our clients on a daily basis.”
Molly developed her strategic communications toolset throughout her undergraduate career. Molly’s experiences as an editorial intern for a leading news website in the outdoors space and as a public relations intern for a swimwear company culminated in the founding of her own surf magazine. As the creative director and editor-in-chief of the publication, she engaged a global audience with written and visual online content and managed the production of a 100-page print edition. In addition to copyediting, Molly specialized in producing timely interviews, news articles and essays. Molly also has public agency experience under her belt. She spent three months in the nation’s capital as an Intern Investigator for the Public Defender Service for D.C.
“I am confident that Molly’s creative talents and sharp writing skills will make her an asset to our clients,” said Ryder Todd Smith, president of Tripepi Smith. “Molly has a growth mindset that makes her an excellent fit for our highly driven, intellectually curious team.”
Molly recently completed her B.A. in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics with a Legal Studies sequence at the Claremont Colleges. She is enthusiastic about public service, crafting impactful messages, and the “Always Be Learning” ethos of Tripepi Smith.
“We are excited to welcome another Claremont Colleges alum to the firm,” said CFO Nicole Smith. “Our expectations of Molly are high and the real winners will be our clients.”
