What did she do during her internship?
Grace participated in research for a strategic consulting project and contributed to Harbor View's marketing efforts. Her favorite part of the internship was the people! She learned so much from everyone she worked with and was so impressed by the work ethic and enthusiasm that everyone brought to the table. She also loved the “lunch and learns” where different people who are experts in their fields came to speak with the interns.
How did her internship experience help her with her career progression?
Interning at HVA made her realize that she wanted to pursue a career in finance among people who care about the work that they are doing. Looking for this kind of career and culture is what led her to her current position with the William Penn Foundation.
Where is she now?
Grace graduated from Haverford College and is now an Investment Analyst for the William Penn Foundation in Philadelphia.
