Meet the Interns! The Orange County Riptide is proud to announce our Spring 2021 Intern staff. Throughout the coming weeks, we will announce a new intern joining our staff in 2021 to help advance our goals of putting the best summer collegiate baseball team on the field and offering fans the best experience in the summer of 2021.
Let’s meet our first intern from our Marketing and Publicity Department:
Tatum McGovern joins the Orange County Riptide 2021 Marketing Staff as a second year Business Administration-Marketing major with an Advertising minor at Chapman University. At Chapman, she is a member of the sorority Gamma Phi Beta where she is the Activities Chairwoman. While looking to pursue a career in the business world after college, Tatum is eager to apply her knowledge of marketing, social media, advertising and sports to help the OC Riptide succeed this upcoming season.
In High School, Tatum was Senior Class President and the DECA Communications Officer where she ran multiple social media platforms to inform students, staff, and the community about upcoming events and deadlines through fliers, hype videos, posters, and more. Diving into these roles is where she first developed a love for advertising and marketing, so she started her own scrunchie hair tie business primarily promoting the products on social media platforms.
Tatum is originally from a small town outside of Seattle, Washington where she grew up with an older sister and two older brothers. From being dragged along to baseball games for her two brothers, she developed an interest in baseball early on. Growing up, she played basketball for 8 years and volleyball for 12 years where she learned to be a leader and a great team player, all while meeting many great friends and traveling to many places along the way. Tatum enjoys creating videos, working out, sunsets, taking pictures, coffee, going to the beach, traveling, and spending quality time with friends.
