Note from an intern:

"My name is Willa and I completed my 9 month internship at the end of June. I am only leaving the position because I'm moving across the country. Chelsea is an amazing leader and mentor, and 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. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions (about my experience)!" willa.conway@gmail.com
