This is Valerie’s first summer working at ECN, and she enjoys working here because once an assignment is given, you have room to grow and do the assignment on your own. She also likes the environment, and loves being able to dabble into different things while at work because every day is different. In her free time, Valerie loves the beach, theme parks, roller coasters and other adrenaline packed activities.

Major: Computer Science

Jacob has been working at ECN for six months, and loves the responsibility he is given as an intern. Jacob also likes working at ECN because he is treated as part of the team, not as an intern. When Jacob isn’t going to school or working, he enjoys fishing, skateboarding, hackathons and developing apps.

Joey is fairly new to ECN and has only been working here for less than a week! So far, one thing he likes about ECN is the outside patio area. When Joey isn’t working or at school, he likes reading, video games and watching anime.

This is Victoria’s first summer working for ECN, and she enjoys writing the newsletters, blogs and being a part of a company that gives the interns a lot of responsibility. Victoria also likes the friendly atmosphere and the ability to wear sandals to work in the hot Florida weather. When she isn’t at work or school, Victoria likes to workout, practice baton, write and hang out with friends (and her dog Mervin).
