We are thrilled to welcome our three interns for Summer 2023! It’s a pleasure to continue our internship program as it gives students an opportunity to be fully immersed in their anticipated professions, and its a wonderful opportunity for our staff to engage in mentoring the next wave of professionals entering the field.
Take a moment to read on about this year’s trio, and in classic IKM fashion we’ve grilled them with our tried and true “This or That” questions!

How do you make a difference? Back home For many years I was helping my neighborhood rehoming street cats and dogs. Me and my friend built small winter houses and made signs for feeding instructions.
