Collections Intern

June 2019 - September 2019 Hudson, WI
“I very much loved the environment and people that I worked with. Everyone was very kind and very helpful in assisting me in my projects, as well as answering any questions I may have had. I loved being hands-on with historical artifacts in their possession and even got to decide which artifacts got to have a spotlight on their tours and which did not. The museum staff didn't know everything they had in their collection and sent me to dig through old boxes and drawers full of artifacts that possibly hadn't seen the light in decades. It was such a cool experience. ”
