Administrative Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Evanston, IL
“I loved taking part in art therapy and music therapy sessions with clients. I enjoyed helping children with ADHD and Autism, and I loved interacting with adult clients with intellectual disabilities and dementia. I gained valuable marketing and research skills, including things like transitioning electronic health records. I also learned a ton about nonprofit work through classes on grant writing and assisting with donation drives.”
