SoCreate Expands Its Outreach Team with Intern Athena Pruett

One might say Athena Pruett is already an entertainment expert, so she fits in perfectly with the creative powerhouses on our Outreach team here at SoCreate! Athena will be interning with SoCreate to expand our outreach work within the writing community.

Athena grew up on the stage and still spends most of her time in the dance studio. And I, for one, am thrilled to have another dancer in my (virtual) midst. Having also been born with jazz hands, I know that dancers are trained in the craft of discipline, encouragement, and appreciation for other artists. It’s a perfect combination of skills for the work she’ll be doing to root on the writing community and support them however we can as a company.

But there’s another critical connection that makes me excited to have Athena on the team. She’s the daughter of our Chief of Operations Amy Pruett, so she has seen first-hand what we’re working on over here at SoCreate, and our values are already instilled in her.

“I observed SoCreate grow for many years, and I am overjoyed to become part of the team!” she told me. “SoCreate has such a dedication to the mission. Being immersed in this team that strives for big results is a great opportunity to learn and create.”

Learn and create, she will! As we get closer to launching private beta trials for SoCreate Screenwriting Software, Athena will be working on projects that help us spread the word about the revolution headed toward screenwriters around the globe.

And, if I allow her to take a break (just kidding, we totally value work-life balance here at SoCreate), she said she’ll be spending her free time swimming in the ocean or taking advantage of one of San Luis Obispo County’s many beautiful hikes. It is a perk of the job to have these natural wonders in our backyard.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out SoCreate’s open positions so you, too, can get in on this awesomeness. You’ll be joining a team that’s about to change the future of storytelling as we know it.

Shuffle off to Buffalo with us,

Hired on During a Pandemic? It's No Sweat for SoCreate's New Designer, Holly Capp

You read that right. Even during a global pandemic, SoCreate is still hiring. We just couldn't pass up a talent like our newest UX designer, Holly Capp. Plus, her story with SoCreate actually starts way back in 2019. Remember that year? Phew, it's been an interesting few months! Our founder Justin Couto first approached Holly on LinkedIn late last year (keep your LinkedIn's up to date, people because this is how SoCreate found me, too!). Impressed by her resume, which included a BFA in Graphic Design from SUNY Oswego, home and office product design, and design and project management at ...
