Senior Kevin McDonough's love of community-based organizations and activist work led him to apply for an internship with Federal Hill Main Street under the direction of the organization's director, Hillary Chester. Kevin's work with the organization has included direct contact with the businesses of Historic Federal Hill, as well as lots of event planning experience, research, and work in development. Getting to know the historic area south of Baltimore's Inner Harbor has been exciting for Kevin as well.
Senior Kelsey Marden's love of writing led her to an internship with Jack Gilden, a professional writer, marketing expert, and businessman.  His current business, Divorce Circus, investigates and writes about issues pertaining to marriage, family life, and divorce. Kelsey has been gaining experience editing some of her own work under an exceptional mentor as well as learning what sets apart good business writing from mediocre. She hopes to land a career in writing after graduation.

Junior Julia Cooke knew she had an interest in market research, and this curiosity caused her to pursue an internship with Baltimore Research in Towson, Maryland, which is, according to its website, "a full-service marketing research firm, as well as Baltimore's premier focus group facility." Under the supervision of Ted Donnelly, the Administration Managing Director, Julia has been learning how to interview contacts, transcribe focus group discussions, and perform a variety of other market research tasks. Because of her internship, she continues to be excited about a career in research.

According to its website, the mission of the organization, established in 1971, is to address the legal needs of women, especially in the area of family law and in the workplace.  Chloe has been involved in public relations and event planning, among many other areas of work.

The students helped to welcome our visitors and participated in the presentation as well. They are (l to r) Grace Clark, Kaitlyn Rollyson,  Julia Cooke and Emma Ragon.
