21 May Meet the KB Advisory Group Interns
KB Advisory Group is fortunate to employ the services of three outstanding interns for the summer of 2021. These paid interns have already made numerous indelible marks on the firm and we expect them to continue their positive impact in the coming months. Through the ups and downs of the pandemic, they’ve shown great drive, grit, and intelligence – rolling with the punches and continuing to find ways to contribute to the projects on which they are working.
Of course the number one priority for any intern is to learn skills from veteran employees and take those lessons with them to use throughout their career. This group of interns is learning plenty, while at the same time, providing quality research, analysis, and keen insights for our clients.
We are proud to call this group part of the KB Advisory Group team.

Background: BA in International Studies, BA in German, University of North Texas 2018
Degree: Master of City and Regional Planning and Master of Science in Public Policy from Georgia Institute of Technology, Specialization in Economic Development, Dec 2021
With a background in International Development and German, I was motivated to enter the field of economic and real estate development policy from my experiences around the world. I chose to study at Georgia Tech to fortify my knowledge of the field with hard, modern skills and innovative methods to support me in my career. My position at KB Advisory Group as a data analyst intern professionally complements my studies, helping me develop an understanding of how policymakers and industry partners tell data-based stories that support development.

Background: BBA Economics, Certificate in GIS from the University of Georgia, 2020
Simulator and strategy games were my gateway to urban economics as a child. While studying economics in college, a chance encounter with a drone at the library introduced me to Geographic Information Science. My internship at KB Advisory Group enables me to synthesize my interests in economics and GIS. Before joining the firm as an intern, I completed an internship with Trees Atlanta, an organization that protects and improves Atlanta’s urban forests.
Background: BS in Economics & International Affairs, Certificate in Finance, Georgia Institute of Technology 2019
