How does your internship fit into your long-term career goals? This internship has given me an opportunity to experience the corporate side of wellness. My internships in the past have been all on the healthcare side, so this has given me additional perspective into the health and wellness field. I want to be a nurse practitioner; working in the wellness center towards preventative action goes hand in hand with what I hope to do in the future.

Describe your favorite way to spend your time outside of working this summer: Outside of working, I have enjoyed taking trips to the beach and relaxing by the water. I just recently went to Vermont and had a great time hiking, canoeing, and camping.
