SJMC alumnae Jordan Grimmesey and Kathryn Stoudemire didn't know each other as students. Now, they live together in New York City.

Grimmesey, a 2019 visual communications graduate, is an experience designer for Verizon. Stoudemire, a 2019 mass communications graduate, is an account executive for the digital health team at Burson Cohn & Wolfe Global.

Grimmesey and Stoudemire moved to New York City shortly before the pandemic. Although their experiences have been different than they expected, they credit the J-school with their success.

Stoudemire participated in [email protected] and the Carolina Agency, which helped give her knowledge after changing her major before her senior year.
