Licensing Specialist

July 2019 Madison, WI
“I learned so much about licensing day cares, family cares and day camps. I witnessed that the Department truly cares for the welfare, safety and health of children, and their goal is to protect children from any type of harm. This internship provided me with so much knowledge about the operations of a State agency, and I am absolutely thankful to have been a part of the Department this summer.”
