Some of the responsibilities that I have are focusing on family needs to aid in delivering the organization's mission, work to create an overall positive and peaceful atmosphere around the House, checking families in and out of the computer system, entering data into the computer system, and working on different projects for the house manager.


One of the greatest accomplishments from my experience here at Ronald McDonald House was becoming an extremely personable person from listening and talking to the family members of the House.

What advice would you give?

My advice to future students is to definitely look for an internship that you have interest in and are passionate about the mission of the organization.
