Why you wanted to work at Mobile Baykeeper: I wanted to intern at Mobile Baykeeper because I was just ready to start something that would help me achieve my goals. I love Baykeeper's mission because it’s a mission I try to conquer every day. The entire staff works together to make Coastal Alabama a better place to live, and I think that’s pretty awesome. I wanted to be a part of a team that works together like this the Baykeeper team. I knew as soon as I met the staff and other interns I made the right choice to work here. It’s like a home away from home.
