Experience
I have had the opportunity to work on a wide array of projects within the Office of Communications. I aided in the publishing of events and news stories to the Interior's website oneInterior through commonspot (a website server). Along with that, I created new webpages and made edits to existing ones. I was lucky enough to also help out some National Park Service Liaisons and work on a few issues with water resources, biological diversity, and geology.

Sarah Craddock's next steps
Once I graduate with my bachelor's degree in May, I expect to start my career path, whether that be in public service or the private sector I'm not so sure yet. Eventually both! No matter where I end up, I hope to be working with people and advocating for the conservation and enjoyment of our nation's natural resources.
