Associate Director of Internship Services, Bay Area (Prior roles: Program Manager; Business Communications Instructor)
The impact of my hard work is tangible and immediate. I have a front row seat to a performance of young people making the most of an amazing opportunity. All of my instructional, motivational, and facilitation skills are called upon each day.
Each time I receive an email from a student, intern, or alum thanking us for contributing to his or her success, it’s like a shot of adrenaline. Occasionally, I get a personal email thanking me for teaching a certain skill or for holding a student accountable. It reminds me of the importance of the more abstract job duties and motivates me to not shy away from a difficult conversation.
