Jenna interned with Senator John Kerry and Congressman Barney Frank this summer.
She shares, “I have always been interested in public service, and these experiences were truly rewarding. My knowledge and passion for politics were deepened and I have become more aware of issues that affect residents in Massachusetts and how each congressman works towards a solution. It was exciting to be working in the midst of the debt-ceiling debate, listening to the concerns of constituents and relaying them to each congressman.
