Work Experience

Hasbro

Product Design Intern

As an intern at Hasbro I was working in the game’s division for kids 7-12 years old. I worked with some of their core board games like Connect Four, Trouble, Battle Ship, and Candy Land creating new fun ways to play the games and new designs to the board itself. I also got the opportunity to design a whole new line of games from them and present my ideas to my team. Since my internship was remote, I spent most of my time designing and communicating through teams meetings and email, but I was still able to make great connections and learn so much through the guidance of my manager and so many of my co-workers and fellow interns.

Wolf And Shepherd

Product Design Intern

As an intern at Wolf and Shepherd I was an integral part of the design team from day one. I was involved in future concepts and current projects. I found it valuable to learn how shoes are made and witnessed calls with manufacturers. I also got to see how every part of the business works, from photoshoots and social media campaigns, to customer service and the warehouse.

Camp Miniwanca

Camp Counselor

As an overnight camp counselor I worked with girls age 8-12. I became a certified lifeguard and worked directly with the campers as a cabin leader. Additionally, I was an interest group leader for high ropes, woodshed, soccer, and hiking. I found this experience extremely valuable for personal growth and leadership skills.
