Keri Ann Flaccomio
writing & communications portfolio
"Keri Ann Flaccomio worked as a Publicity Intern for Perseus Books Group for several months during the Fall in 2011, helping out on projects involving both the Basic Books and Nation Books imprints. Keri is an excellent writer and contributed to drafting press releases and galley letters for several titles on our fall book list, a responsibility not offered to all interns. Keri proved to be one of the most conscientious, responsible, and dedicated interns I've ever worked with. She was always very eager to learn not just how to perform a task, but cared to know how the specific task fit into the bigger picture—a sign of a committed worker who is truly interested in understanding the industry. She was also involved with multiple research projects, which allowed her the creative opportunity to shine and think outside of the box. Keri was a great asset to our publicity team and a true pleasure to work with."
—Dori Gelb, Development & Communications Associate, American Friends of Migdal Ohr; Former Associate Publicist, Perseus Books Group
"Keri Flaccomio was an excellent reporting intern with The Record during the summer of 2010. She carried out all assigned stories with seriousness and focus. But her particular accomplishment was her enterprise story about the city of Passaic on the 25th anniversary of the devastating 8th Street fire. She researched the fire exhaustively and examined the lasting impacts of the enormous, consuming blaze through numerous interviews with people who'd witnessed it and contemporary public leaders. Through this work she presented readers with a detailed and compelling picture not only of the historic elements of the fire but its present-day consequences. Throughout, Keri conducted her work steadily and professionally, and was always articulate and thorough when discussing the story's progress. She's a pleasure to work with and has a promising future as a journalist."
—Stephen McCarthy, Assignment Editor, The Record and Herald News
"Keri Ann pays attention to the details while efficiently accomplishing tasks. She has developed several flyers and drafted web pages for Student Success at Ramapo College. Her keen eye for editing allows a manager to trust her work with minimal supervision."
—Joseph Connell, Director of Student Success, Center for Student Success at Ramapo College of New Jersey
—Ashley Salmon (Chandler), National Manager, Team Challenge at Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America - New Jersey Chapter
"While interning with Team Challenge for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, Keri took on the marketing and public relations aspects of our upcoming season. She not only was able to secure tabling opportunities at numerous street fairs, races and expos, to promote our program, but she also had an article picked up about one of our top fundraisers right before our event. Her professionalism and initiative to take on projects was impressive, and she continuously exceeded our expectations throughout her time with CCFA."
