2022 recipient of the Audrey J. Harris Summer Internship Award
Interned with the DATCP
My internship at the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) within the International Agribusiness Center (IABC) will be reflected on with warm and fuzzy feelings. This is due to the great experience I had, the excellent people I met, and the good backup career I found working within the agricultural sector. While not in the criminal justice system, this position solidified my future hopes of exploring and joining the criminal justice system with a focus on psychology and investigations. I was able to learn and expand some valuable skills that I could carry over to any sector that involves research, interpersonal communication, and government level discretion. Most of my summer was communicating with homegrown Wisconsin companies to help them promote and market their business in international markets. I am proud to be able to promote Wisconsin and work towards a better future for all through agriculture.
