Olive Giner has harnessed their passion of amplifying clients' voices as an account & public relations coordinator at KPS3 since 2022.
Determined, ambitious, and empathetic, Olive was exposed to the world of marketing and account management through their mentor—our very own Brittany Rubenau—at KPS3’s one-day externship program.
Olive ventured from their hometown in Las Vegas up north to earn their bachelor of arts in journalism with a concentration in public relations and a minor in cultural anthropology at the University of Nevada, Reno. They graduated magna cum laude in 2023 and was one of four featured undergraduate speakers at UNR’s API Affinity Graduation. Additionally, Olive served as a board member of the Public Relations Student Society of America during their undergrad and earned the AAF Reno Outstanding Student in Strategic Communications Award during their time in college.
Olive previously worked at the Nevada Sagebrush for two years as a copy editor, helping to publish amazing works of collegiate journalism. Olive was also a Resident Assistant and a member of the Student Staff Advisory Board, where they advocated for positive departmental change. They worked directly with the executive director of Residential Life, Food, and Housing Services to see it through.
Olive is brand new to the marketing industry. They looks forward to making connections with others and soaking up as much knowledge as they can here at KPS3. Most passionate about using effective communication to tell real stories, they believe that people’s intersectionalities offer crucial perspective to any strategy.
When Olive isn’t at the office, you’ll find them playing video games (currently obsessed with Hades on Switch), listening to KPOP (loves Seventeen and NCT), and going to the movies (Inception, Howl’s Moving Castle, and The Raid: Redemption are their top three favorites). Olive is all about true crime podcasts, enjoys reading sci-fi, and has an appreciation for all kinds of music. Growing up as a violinist in orchestras, Olive has an affinity for jazz and metal. They're happy to explain why it's reminiscent of classical music—just ask!
