As part of PROFILES' first fully remote intern class, Carson Rehfield's move to Account Coordinator felt natural. A Baltimore native who reflects the city's quirky flair, Carson has media experience that ensures clients are gaining coverage in local and national markets.
Starting his career amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Carson demonstrated his willingness to adapt to clients in real-time. His outreach on behalf of the Kennedy Krieger Institute leverages timely news topics and positions its staff and physicians as experts on various topics. His work with Pet Supermarket includes increasing coverage for the store's fundraising efforts in a digital environment.
Carson is no stranger to media lists. His comprehensive scouting has landed hits in outlets such as the Associated Press and Adweek and on stations such as WBAL-TV, WTTG-TV, and WMAR-TV. A former Edelman colleague described Carson as "an earned media machine," a title he holds dearly.
Wrapping up his bachelor's degree in Communication and Government & Politics, Carson expects to graduate from the University of Maryland in the spring of 2022.
