Some people measure summer by warmer weather, some by the end of the school year. At Bluewater, we know it’s here when our interns start! This season, we have a great class and are looking forward to seeing what this group of talented students is able to accomplish. Get to know a little bit about them below.

She will be working with our Marketing team and is thrilled to be in a workplace setting learning new things. Fun facts about Mikayla? She plays soccer at her university, is a twin, and loves being on the lake in the summertime.
