Client Engagement Supervisor

Chernoff Newman has long been committed to developing college students in the Carolinas through hands-on, paid internships. When asked if I would like to take the lead in managing our intern program, I immediately jumped at the chance. I know the impact of a successful internship on your career, and I wanted to help provide a meaningful internship experience for others.

This semester, we’ve welcomed seven interns from the University of South Carolina, College of Charleston, Claflin University, and University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
