Internships

Due to ongoing health concerns, internship positions in both my Washington and District offices are entirely remote until further notice. Although this experience may be different than a typical congressional internship, I am confident the remote experience will provide exceptional experience and knowledge for dedicated, passionate individuals.

My office is committed to ensuring that internship participants have the tools and access they need to succeed in the remote environment. We will work with each intern to provide the equipment and resources necessary to carry out their responsibilities.
