Graphic of a day in the life of a strategic communications specialist.

This month, we’re peeking into a day in the life of Meredith Pierick, one of our strategic communications supervisors.

My day starts around 5:30 each morning with a cup of coffee before my twin toddlers wake up.

When I get the boys situated with their childcare for the day, it’s time to get to work. And time for more coffee.

A Strat Comm team member’s best friend is an organized To Do list. I make sure mine is up to date before I dive into any of the day’s tasks.

Once I have my plan for the day, I’ll have a few meetings to connect with my fellow 2RMers and my clients on current and future projects.

Writing is at the heart of everything Strat Comm does. In between internal and client status meetings, I’ll work on various writing projects for our clients, including press releases, blogs, social copy, talking points, presentations, and whatever else they may need. Today, I’m wrapping up a few product launch press releases.

Lunch break! During lunch, I’ll go for a walk around the beautiful East Village, grab an iced coffee, and catch up on news and industry trends.

After lunch, it’s time to work on the “strategy” part of my Strategic Communications role. Whether it's annual planning or consulting on product launches, helping our clients set their strategy is my favorite part of the job.

With 5 p.m. inching closer, I make sure all client requests are wrapped up and the rest of the team has what they need before logging off.

When I get home, my husband and I spend time playing outside with the twins playing if it’s nice.

My favorite way to unwind after a long workday is to turn on some music and cook a nice meal with a glass of wine in hand. Then, it’s lights out to rest up for another busy day!
