Government Affairs Fellow (2009-2010)
"I worked as the government affairs fellow from July 2009 to May 2010 under Suzanne Hill, Ayana Bradshaw and Dr. Joel Fein. While at CIRP, I worked on efforts to arrange a coalition of small safety groups and major automotive companies to push teen driver restrictions at the national and state level. I also helped the Philadelphia Collaborative Violence Prevention Center liaise to community agencies with similar missions. After graduating with a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of Pennsylvania, I commissioned as an officer in the US Army. I recently completed a year-long deployment and am back seeking civilian employment working in government affairs or a similar field. The experience at and support of CIRP has been absolutely essential for my career search, and I loved every day I spent working with the team."
