Sydney N. Fulkerson is considered a marketing guru. At 23 years old and with more than five years of experience, she excels at written, verbal, and visual communications, new business development, and social media marketing.
Fulkerson crowd-funded The Coffee Run: And Other Internship Need-to-Knows during her senior year of college (Dec 2014). Her book has sold over 1,170 copies since its publication in August 2015, and has been featured on The Today Show, The Huffington Post, Grant Cardone TV, Product Hunt, Bustle, and more. The Coffee Run was inspired by the lack of a what-to-do and how-to-do-it guide for students.
Fulkerson speaks regularly students as an expert on internships and early career development. She was a key speaker and the featured book signing at George Washington University’s Women in Business Spring Conference (April 2016). Fulkerson has also spoken at MediaVillage’s 1st Five Internship Conference hosted at OMD, NYC (July 2015) and is an established blogger for the 1st Five and WomenAdvancing communities on MediaVillage.com.
Fulkerson has over eight years of experience in graphic design. Her portfolio extends across a variety of works for both small to mid-size business and start-ups, including Splits59, Directade, IMC Licensing, and more.
Fulkerson’s expertise in social media marketing derives from her strong interests in data, design, and human behavior to curate shareable and effective content and visuals.
During her college career, she completed three internships: two sales internships for high-end women’s designers in New York City (Shoshanna and Vince) and one marketing internship for a high-end activewear brand in Los Angeles (Splits59).
Fulkerson earned her undergraduate degree in Merchandising and Business Administration from the University of Kentucky, where she graduated one semester early, cum laude, and maintained her spot on the Dean’s List throughout her college career. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
Fulkerson lives by the Eleanor Roosevelt quote, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
