My name is Meghan Kelley, and I am the Spring 2018 Communications Intern at the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, you can find me in the office working on all sorts of exciting projects.
I am a senior English major with minors in writing and business administration at the College of Saint Rose. As much as I have come to love the Albany area, I grew up in suburban Connecticut just outside of Hartford with my younger sister and our dog. When not in class or my internship, I spend my free time reading, writing novels, running, and knitting.
Throughout my time at the Conservancy, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects. I’ve written several blog posts, social media posts, and press releases about upcoming events. I’ve also put my abilities as an English major to work and copyedited documents. I’ve had the chance to work on a lot of projects I had never attempted before, and I am deeply appreciative for the guidance I have received.
Working at the Conservancy has been a wonderful experience and has allowed me to reconnect with my environmental interests. I will admit that I don’t spend as much time outdoors as I would like, but ever since taking an AP Environmental Science class in high school, I have been interested in how I could put to use my skills as an English major to help preserve the environment. With the Conservancy, I’ve had the opportunity to visit a preserve and volunteer with a cleanup as well as write blog posts and press releases about all the ways the Conservancy works towards protecting the environment.
I thank Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy for the opportunity to learn from such an impressive organization.
