Government Relation Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Washington, DC
“I enjoyed the experience because it allowed me to see the inner workings of a trade association in downtown Washington D.C. Because we were located on K St., I was right in the thick of the lobbying sphere and D.C. networking. I loved that I was able to engage in many different experiences such as running meetings, participating in events on the Hill, reaching out to Representatives and Senators, writing communication materials and much much more. ”
