Hi everyone! I know y’all are used to Audree, but today TEAM SAK is taking over the blog to introduce ourselves! We all help Audree manage the blog and her busy, busy life and are so excited to officially “meet” everyone. We work together to bring you the best content possible and have tons of fun doing it! Keep on reading to hear more about us, our favorite articles, and more!

Hi, I’m Lauren Gragson!

I’m the Editorial Intern for Simply Audree Kate! I’m a junior at Northern Arizona University, and I’m from Las Vegas, NV. I have been part of TEAM SAK for about a year and a half. I met Audree when I interned at Redbook magazine during summer 2016 and ever since she has taken me under her wing! I’m sure you’re wondering what I’ve been doing for team SAK for the past 19 months, so I’m going to give you a brief overview.

At the beginning of my SAK days I was mostly helping Audree with social media analytics and brainstorming blog content. As time went on I decided I wanted to dive into the editorial aspect. This was easily achieved when I was with Audree in-person in NYC during summer 2017. During that summer I helped brainstorm the editorial calendar, got behind the camera, and even helped out with a few posts here and there. Over the summer Audree helped me find my voice and explore new opportunities. In September, I assisted Audree at NYFW and fell even more in love with the NYC fashion scene. Today I help curate trend guides, shopping posts, and still help brainstorm content all the way from Arizona.

I get a lot of my fashion inspiration from SAK, Audree has a killer sense of style which I love! She helped me realize it’s okay to stand out from the crowd, especially in a small AZ town. Hopefully I’ll be able to head back to the concrete jungle ASAP because I miss my TEAM SAK babes! xo

Hi, I’m Dayna Lawrence!

Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Dayna, social media intern for Simply Audree Kate. If we have had the pleasure of meeting in person, you know me as Audree’s shadow/personal amateur photographer. I’m a freshman at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and I’ve been on team SAK for about 6 months now, but it’s been a long time coming since I have followed SAK for almost 2 years! (shoutout to the OG SAK posts ft. Audree’s red hair for catching my eye). So what have I been doing these past 6 months? Glad you asked. I sit down with Audree and the rest of the team (and iced coffee, you can’t forget the iced coffee) to schedule posts across all Simply Audree Kate social media platforms. We use each other as sound boards for new post ideas, captions, and posting schedules, then after an idea has been plotted into perfection, we find the best way to execute it. At the end of each week I help the team put together an analytic update to see what our followers respond best to, because after all, this is your blog as much as it is Audree’s!
I also brainstorm and draft posts for the blog, which is arguably my favorite part of the job! I love being able to talk about topics that I am passionate about like fashion education, and fashion history with the help of someone who has industry experience. I hope you all learn as much from reading these articles as I do from writing them!
I can’t forget to mention the events I attend with Audree IRL, because yes, even a social media intern needs to put down her phone and laptop from time to time. From assisting on set of photo shoots, to networking events and Fashion Week shows, there is never a dull moment for team SAK. We are a very busy team, and sometimes a divide and conquer strategy is the way to go when the namesake of the blog can’t be everywhere at once!

Hi, I’m Christina Bechtel!

Hey guys! My name is Christina Bechtel and I have been interning for Audree for a little over 6 months. I am originally from Seattle, WA but I am currently a first-year Marketing student at LIM College here in NYC and am absolutely loving it. I found Audree on Instagram before I moved to NYC and was not so secretly obsessed with her style so being apart of Team SAK is very inspiring!

Alongside Dayna, I manage SAK’s social media platforms, marketing activities, and capture all the behind-the-scenes content. I also help pitch article ideas and write them, my favorite that I’ve worked on was “6 Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Closet”- check out here if you missed it! Outside of interning, I work in retail and am involved with my school’s programs. Fun fact: I am an identical twin!

Now that you know the entire team, look for us every time you see the Team SAK sign off! *hint hint, it’s below this*
