"I worked for the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) in the Office of the General Counsel as a Law Clerk. The CEQ is a part of the Executive Office of the President and helps coordinate and develop national environmental policies and initiatives. The Office of the General Counsel is a small team that included four clerks, four attorneys, and the General Counsel. This meant that there was plenty of work for everyone starting day one.

From clean water to renewable energy to public lands, each week held a new issue to tackle. The close knit team made it a great working environment and the ability to interact with stakeholders from across the country really put things into perspective. It was a fascinating experience that illuminated what it is like to work with people at the top of their field and was something I won’t soon forget."
