We are proud supporters of Appalachian State University Mountaineers! One of the many ways we show our support is by providing learning and real-world experience opportunities through marketing and business internships. We enjoy the time they spend with us and the bright ideas they bring to the table. Below are the individuals that we have been blessed to work with!
Meet Ariel! Ariel worked at Vincent Properties as an ASU Marketing Intern. Ariel attended Appalachian State University, majoring in Marketing with a concentration in Professional Selling. She is from Hickory, NC, and chose to stay close to the mountains for school. She remembers coming to Boone and Blowing Rock as a kid to enjoy Kilwins ice cream and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Ariel enjoys playing soccer, snowboarding, hiking, and reading.
Ariel was the President of the American Marketing Association collegiate chapter at Appalachian State. She is thankful for the opportunities, and friends the association has brought her. Another important aspect of the club is making sure it creates friendships and bonds between members.
Outside of School & Work
In the High Country, Ariel’s favorite things include tubing down the river, exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking in the Gorge, and going to App State football games. Ariel loves meeting new people and is always eager to build new friendships.
She played competitive soccer from the time she was 5 years old until her Freshman year at App State. She finished her soccer career after playing on the club team. Ariel enjoyed participating in intramural soccer and volleyball. Ariel says “soccer taught me more than I ever learned in a high school classroom. It taught me to be a friend, to be a team player, to be a leader, and that hard work always pays off”.
Grace was a rising senior majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing during her time at Vincent Properties. Grace decided on this route due to her love of reading and writing and her excellent people skills. Being a Mountaineer has almost become a Lewis family tradition. Grace’s parents both graduated from ASU. It is clear that their college experience paved the way for rewarding careers, as well as life-long friends.
She spent much of her high school career involved with the National Technical Honors Society, Prom Committee, and Young Life. Grace paved the way to success in her college life through these experiences. Grace was gotten involved with many clubs on campus. She devoted most of her time as Vice President of her sorority, Chi Omega. Grace enjoys being a leader to those around her. She wishes to give back to the organizations and community around her.

Grace enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also likes to run in her free time and play with her chocolate lab, Hemingway. In the fall, Grace looks forward to game days at The Rock and hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway with friends. Snowboarding at Beech Mountain is one of her favorite high country winter activities.
