“My internship here has been one of the best so far! I’ve been able to do meaningful analytical work for clients, learned to work with a ton of different tools, and have made friends all at the same time. It’s been a great experience of having professional guidance while still having the ability to make mistakes and work through things on my own. I would definitely recommend anyone to this position!”

-Lisa Lyons, Former Informatics Specialist
