Note from the current intern:

My name is Willa Conway am completing my 9 month internship at the end of June and I am only leaving the position because I am moving across the country. Chelsea is an amazing leader and mentor. Working with her is joyful and rigorous. She leads in a way that is embodied, loving, and disciplined and has allowed me to learn more about my own strengths as a leader and how I want to lead in my life. I feel that my gifts have been brought forward and honored and I am leaving this position a stronger leader than when I came in.
