Jen comes to us with a great attitude and an eagerness to be of help. She says she applied for the position because she felt it would be a good atmosphere for one of her first work experiences, and she felt strongly about HSP’s programs. Jen’s parents are active volunteers in the community, and she says they have been a big influence on her by inspiring her to be active in serving others as well. In her own right, Jen is an active volunteer at an animal shelter when she is at school, where she enjoys caring for, and walking, the dogs.
Jen says what she hopes to get out of her internship is a good “hands on” experience to both explore her own interests and combine the cultivating of her skills with a chance to help those in need. Jen anticipates her internship being a real “win-win,” and, while it may be just her first day, everyone at HSP is inclined to agree. Please join us in welcoming her to the HSP team.
