KL Webb Insurance

My supervisor genuinely cared about my growth as a young professional. He took time and critiqued me when it needed to be done , but also told me when I was doing something well.

Brittany Ward


Labor and Delivery Unit | Strong Memorial Hospital

It was an amazing experience. It allowed me to get hands on practice with my nursing skills and interact with patients and babies. I was able to learn the flow of the floor and become more comfortable. I would recommend that all nursing students take an internship if the opportunity comes about. 

Amy Folwell

Social Work

Pre-Trial Services

I work mainly with Human Trafficking Victims. As ignorant as it sounds this placement has taught me that the things on TV really do exist. Another thing that I have learned along the way is that some clients need to take baby steps. Over tasking a client sets them up for failure, so even though our program is typically 5 months some may take longer. I absolutely love coming into work everyday and seeing the smiles on their faces, even though they are in a tough spot.
