Meet our newest rockstar: Carolyn Turney
Get to know the newest addition to the BC/DC Ideas team, our intern Carolyn Turney. We love her (in a completely professional way), and so will you!
It’s never boring. From reading and analyzing trends, to understanding clients’ needs and wants, to crafting custom strategies with beautiful design and a powerful message – every step is a rewarding challenge.
We all love nonprofits and have passion points that really fire us up. And Carolyn isn’t any different! What is your nonprofit passion point?
As of late, I’ve been heavily involved in conservation efforts. The sustainability of our ecosystem so strongly affects many other areas of our lives, including the economy, food security and public health that it’s a dangerous issue to ignore.
Why are you excited to join the BC/DC Ideas team?
It’s refreshing to be part of a vibrant and innovative organization in such an evolving sector. Working with nonprofit organizations with hearts for philanthropic missions only sweetens the pot. I can’t wait to work with BC/DC Ideas’ forward-thinking partners to create dynamic, powerful and resonant messaging – both online and in print – for causes that I believe in.
Where would people most likely find you on a Saturday afternoon?
Probably checking out the latest Raleigh/Durham festival – there are so many! Bike riding, making sushi, reading, volunteering and grabbing drinks with friends are also weekend staples.
Which rockstar/musician/band would you most like to be and why?
Being an introvert, fame has never been high on my list of wants. But if I HAD to choose, I would probably go with Tragic Kingdom-era Gwen Stefani. The 90’s alt years were inundated with male musicians, so Gwen was iconic and empowering for girls like me that wanted to crash the boys club and just couldn’t buy into the Britney & Christina shtick. I loved that she could hang with the boys and not be expected to swoon over them – all without having to sacrifice style (or red lipstick!).
What is your favorite color?
Gray. It goes with anything and it mimics the feel of dreary, rainy days that I adore.
