As an intern with MercyCare Business Health Solutions I conducted individual and company health assessments, organized wellness programming and events, gave presentations, created promotional fliers, emails, announcements, and newsletters, assisted with wellness program management, promoted health and wellness services, and communicated with employees regarding wellness requirements via phone, email, and face to face.


My greatest accomplishment was the amount of biometric screenings I did during my internship. A huge part of MercyCare Business Health Solutions wellness requirements are to complete a biometric screening, so I was always completing these both at our office as well as at different companies.

What advice would you give?

Some advice that I would give to future students is to never say no to an opportunity even if it makes you step out of your comfort zone. This is the best way to learn new things and you never know when you might find something you love to do.
