Communications Intern: The Writer Behind the Stories

"My main job was to interview employees about why they love working at Foundation Medicine and then write about it. Those pieces would then eventually go online on our careers blog. During these interviews, I got to see how each and every employee is passionate about the work they do. I saw their eyes light up when talking about their role, the people they work with, and their passion for patients. I was honored to be able to write their stories and found it extremely humbling."
