DOI Office of the Secretary
How Caitlin Brown got involved with DOI Office of the Secretary
After getting accepted to the Bing Stanford in Washington Program, I worked with the program coordinator to find a full time internship placement. With my interest in water policy, the DOI internship in the Office of the Secretary was a perfect fit.
The highlight so far has been getting to work with Anne Castle, the Assistant Secretary of Water and Science. She spent time working with me on my policy writing.

Caitlin Brown's next steps
I am leaving here to begin my summer job as the Head Logistics Coordinator for the Outward Bound High Sierra Base. After that, I will return to Stanford for my senior year. I hope to take Water Law and Environmental Law through the Law School to prepare me to come back to DC. I think that law school is in my future, but I want to work before applying.
