Past Interns on Their Experience at Center for BrainHealth


“The people I worked with [at the Center for BrainHealth] made the internship experience unlike any I have had before! They were always open, honest, and willing to help me in any way if I didn’t know how to do something. After my summer internship, I was able to continue to intern for the Center for BrainHealth and grow with the organization.”

-Sarah H., 2016 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern

I couldn’t have asked for a better or more inspiring, diverse team to work with this summer. I was exposed to projects in marketing, workplace engagement, brand management, community relations, event planning and much more. I truly valued being able to dip my foot in all of these specialties and feel that by learning the programs, techniques and skills required of each task, I was able to become a well-rounded individual in the professional sphere. I can now confidently say that I am a better communicator and leader.”
