Intern Spotlight: Christina Parsons

Christina Parsons has been interning with the Employment team since early January 2017 and has proven to be an indispensable asset. Christina has worked with many of our community members on understanding their job search options, updating resumes, filling out job applications, assisting with interviews and navigating public transportation to and from a new job. No matter the task, Christina accepts each new challenge with ease and grace. She welcomes each of our community members with a smile and makes everyone around her feel like they belong and are in trusted, caring hands. It truly has been a pleasure having Christina around the office these last few months and our staff and community members will certainly miss her positivity and productivity once her internship is complete.....or maybe we won't have to, as Christina plans to continue volunteering with ACC (time permitting) after she graduates next month in May. Christina has been attending Denver Seminary School, finishing her Master's Degree in Justice and Missions. She plans to engage in her own job search following graduation and hopes to stay connected to the refugee community, whether personally or professionally, in her future endeavors.
