Kendall is joining us for a few weeks to work on a few “special ops” projects before heading back the U.K. to finish off her last year of boarding school. Kendall loves to travel, and we’re happy to have her join our interns: Katherine, Caitlin, Steve, and Brian. That’s the largest crop of interns yet, but they are absolutely killing it!
