Haley Martis, Director of Marketing
Hi there! My name is Haley Martis and I am the Director of Marketing for the 2016-17 school year. I am a junior majoring in Advertising with a minor in Information Technology. This is my second year being involved in MSUMA and I am thrilled to be able to manage our social media accounts, run our website, and encourage new membership through our marketing efforts at events.
Currently I work as the Assistant Director of Marketing for the student government, ASMSU, the Campus Marketing Representative for Insomnia Cookies, and the Brand Ambassador for Amazon Student. I have many things on my plate but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love to help our members learn more about the different areas of marketing and assist with resume building and job searches. Feel free to ask me any questions or give suggestions that you might have!
Since joining MSUMA I discovered a lifelong group of friends, had lots of laughs, and ate tons of pizza (We always supply free food at our meetings - my favorite part!). Along with those benefits I gained an incredible amount of skills, including networking, leadership, and professionalism. We host many social events like grill outs, hayride, and sports games. On the professional side we meet with recruiters from a variety of companies and go on our annual fall and spring trips to tour them. I can't wait to see you at our next meeting!
Shannon Martin, Director of Events
My name is Shannon Martin and I am the Director of Events for MSUMA for the 2016-2017 school year! I am very excited to be planning our Fall and Spring trips as well as our social events. I encourage everyone to come to the trips as well as all of our other events we hold! My favorite part of the first year I joined MSUMA was going on the Fall trip to Grand Rapids and meeting new people. The trips and events we hold are a great way to meet new people, build relationships with members, and network.
I am currently a senior marketing major. I interned for about a year with Mitchell Research & Communications, a public relations and consulting firm, which is located in East Lansing. Now I am a Marketing Intern for Summer 2016 at Commonwealth Associates, Inc., an engineering firm headquartered in Jackson.
The Marketing Association is a great organization to meet new people, network, grow as a student, get help with your resume, and learn more about business. I am very excited to meet all the members and have a great school year! I encourage everyone to reach out to the Executive Board members if you have any questions at all.

As the Director of Membership, it is my responsibility and pleasure to ensure that each current and new member benefits from joining MSUMA in the workplace and socially. Joining a large club may seem quite daunting at first; however, everyone involved in this association is treated like family. I am extremely eager to reach out to prospective members and reconnect with the current ones to form an even bigger and more amazing family this year.
The executive board strives to provide unforgettable and rewarding experiences through networking events with numerous corporations, lectures from established business professionals, and social events that create enough memories to last a lifetime. Not many students in other clubs can say that they have the opportunity to successfully build their resume while making new friends and connections simultaneously. Come check us out at one of our bi-weekly meetings, grab some free food, and discover why you should choose MSUMA!
Ryan Watson, Director of Corporate Relations
My name is Ryan Watson and I am this year’s Director of Corporate Relations for MSUMA. It is my responsibility to reach out and develop relationships with companies, which lead to sponsorships and guest speakers. I am looking forward to an eventful year with some awesome companies! MSUMA is a great way to learn more about a career in marketing along with the business field in general. I was easily able to develop myself professionally by being as active as possible.
To get to know me a little bit, this will be my second year in MSUMA. I will be a senior pursuing a degree in marketing. This summer I worked at a small company in Walled Lake called Soundog Applications as a Marketing & Sales Intern. When I’m not working I love doing anything around water, traveling, and automotive racing.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior I hope to see you at some of our meetings and social events this year! It will be one of the best decisions you can make as a Spartan.
