Graduate Spotlight: Ashley Reynolds MS, RD, LDN
My Mass General Experience:
The early mornings in the management rotations, the time spent on the hospital floors talking with patients, and of course 12 interns in the locker room at once!
The MGH internship taught me how to adapt to a range of work styles, people and environments. These skills are essential in my day-to-day work in the public relations world interfacing with a variety of clients.
My Life Beyond the Internship:Folliwing the internship, I stayed at MGH for two years as a Clinical Nutrition Specialist in the Pediatric Epilepsy Program. I concurrently completed my MS in Nutrition Communication at Tufts University. In 2010, I joined the Public Relations & Social INfluence practice at Mullen in Boston where I'm a Senior Nutrition Communications Specilaist. As for volunteer work, I've been volunteering with the Brookline Food Pantry for the last year and a half.
I made some wonderful friends from my internship year - from weddings, babies, and new jobs, it's been great keeping up with everyone since graduation!
My Words of Advice:
Ask questions, welcome each experience as a learning opportunity and never burn your bridges.
