At the end of May, the 605 team welcomed our 2022 marketing and events intern to our office.
Kelsey Sutton attends the University of Sioux Falls for media studies and minors in marketing. She says she has concentrations in social media marketing and media management. She is set to graduate in 2023.
“I’ve grown up seeing 605 Magazine, so that was a start. But I recently became head editor and designer of my collegiate magazine, The Vessel, which definitely sparked my interest,” said Kelsey.
We’re so excited to have Kelsey with us for the summer, helping to arrange 605 events like the 605 Summer Classic and 605 Black Hills Classic.
Get to know Kelsey from her goals to where she likes to spend her time and more.
What’s your dream career?
I feel like my dream career changes often. Currently, I would love to be a brand strategist and create beautiful brand guides for companies, but I also love freelancing companies’ social media and hope to continue doing that in my career.
How do you like to spend your time on the weekends?
I rarely get lazy weekends. Most weekends, you can find me taking up a workout class, spending time with my fiance and our families, or working on design, graphics, and social media. I am notoriously a busy body and don’t love being sedentary, so being outside and hiking or taking a workout class is right up my alley.

“I am genuinely so excited for all of the opportunities and possibilities that this internship holds. There is so much that I can learn from each and every person here, and I am fascinated watching other people design, edit, and photograph.” -Kelsey Sutton
What is a show you recommend binging?
Oh gosh, so many good shows! A few favorites would have to be Bridgerton and Jane the Virgin.
What’s your go-to coffee order? (Where are your favorite coffee shops?)
Honestly it depends on where I’m going! Scooters Coffee is my favorite on-the-go coffee and they have the yummiest Chai Tea Lattes with almond milk and Honey Vanilla Lattes with Almond Milk. I’m almost always a hot coffee drinker. My other local favorites would have to be La Luna Cafe and Josiah’s Coffeehouse & Cafe.
What does self care look like for you?
Self care for me is taking care of my body and fueling it the best that I can. Additionally a little face and hair mask never fails to make me feel like a new woman.
