Reagan began an internship with the Center for Justice this past April and will be with us through the end of her senior year. Upon graduating Gonzaga, she is planning to attend law school and pursue a career in environmental law.
Why did you want to intern for the Center for Justice?
I really wanted to be able to intern somewhere I felt I could gain experience and knowledge about non-profit legal work. After hearing about the Center for Justice I felt that it would be a great place for me to gain exposure to environmental and poverty law.
What is the best part about interning for the Center for Justice?
Having the opportunity to work for an organization doing work I find so inspiring has been a very rewarding experience. The best part of working here has been witnessing the commitment to justice the entire staff has, their passion for helping others has been contagious and has given me a strong sense of how important non-profit legal work is to ensure a fair justice system.
What have you learned while working for the Center for Justice?
I’ve learned a lot about the Spokane community, and the types of issues being faced both in terms of the environment and the legal system. On a more personal level I have bettered my organizational and time management skills, as well as gaining familiarity with various data entry and promotional programs.
“We are delighted to have Reagan as a member of our team. She brings enthusiasm each day to the office and has been such an immense help to the development department. She demonstrates an appetite for knowledge and is always eager to dig deeper to understand the societal impact of our work in the community. I’m confident Reagan will make a talented leader one day in whatever field she chooses!” –Megan Wingo
