Where do you go to school and what are you studying towards?
I will be attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Design this fall for my Masters in Urban Spatial Analytics.
What attracted you to Reinvestment Fund for a summer internship?
I was most attracted to Reinvestment Fund for a summer internship because of the chance to become truly involved with a growing, web-based mapping company that is providing particularly interesting and useful data to a wide range of subscribers.
What are some of the things you will be working on for Reinvestment Fund this summer? What do you hope to learn from your internship here?
This summer I will be focusing mainly on updating and standardizing nation-wide zoning data through ArcGIS and SQL. As an intern, I’m hoping to learn more about processing data and introducing it to the PolicyMap environment.
Share something interesting you have learned about Reinvestment Fund or the industry in your first few weeks here.
Coming from a very large corporation, it has been particularly interesting to see how all of the departments within the company interact on a daily basis—I think that this really promotes valuable communication and idea sharing across the company.
