“The Senate Fellows Program was an invaluable experience – professionally, academically and personally. As a young professional, I had the opportunity to learn directly from experts – public servants who took the time to mentor me and teach me the ropes. My colleagues had an open-door policy that allowed me ask questions and gain insight on policy and politics. Most importantly, the people I met and the relationships I built still resonate in my life today. That foundation as a Fellow launched my career in public service.”
