The ‘developing’ story about our interns

August 29, 2014

Last month, we introduced our interns helping contribute to our work on stewardship and the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. Now, meet Rebecca Brunn, our development intern who has stepped in to coordinate many of the finer details for the Coalition’s annual breakfast.

Rebecca, a native of New York, graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in Liberal Arts. A former park ranger and AmeriCorps volunteer, she is thrilled to be combining her love of the outdoors with her experience in nonprofits here at the Coalition. Some of her favorite activities include snowboarding, long-distance swimming, playing ultimate frisbee, making stained glass windows and cheering for the New York Giants.

“I was drawn to the Coalition by the sheer dedication it has for preserving Washington’s natural spaces,” Rebecca says. “Preservation is ideally a collaborative effort, and engaging Washington’s hikers, boaters, kite flyers and bird watchers as an essential part of that effort is what sold me on the Coalition. I am excited to grow as both a nonprofit professional and an outdoors enthusiast with this great organization.”

Great to have you on the team, Rebecca! Be sure to say hi to our interns at the registration table at the Coalition’s breakfast on September 23.
