Research Recovery Intern

June 2019 Seattle, WA
“I loved the internship program with King County. There was a big focus on learning not just going to work and working on projects. We went on a lot of field trips and I got to learn about other sections as well.”

Project Management Intern

June 2019 - September 2019 Seattle, WA
“I enjoyed being able to see how large capital projects operate from start to finish. I enjoyed the exposure to the different areas in King County's Wastewater Treatment Division and our treatment facilities/processes in King County. As a project management intern, I was able to coordinate with several teams to learn about different projects and help advance those projects forward towards completion.”
