I worked at Gravitate PR as an intern and it was an awesome place to work. The company has a small, but very experienced team led by amazing leadership from Lisette Paras (Founder and President). Everyone was very welcoming and I had a great time working here.

You learn a lot from working alongside Lisette and you get great exposure to the professional workplace.
