Hear what past interns have to say!

I had a really great experience working at Lawndale. I really enjoyed being a part of an incredibly friendly and talented group of people. Everyone was so eager to help me learn and grow! I can’t even begin to list everything I have learned in these six months but I’m confident the skills and knowledge I’ve acquired will benefit me throughout my career and personal life. It’s been such a unique and memorable experience that I know I could have only had here at Lawndale! – Katherine
