BDCC Announces new Internship Coordinator

Brattleboro, Vermont (January 13, 2017) – The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) is pleased to announce Kristin Mehalick will be filling our open Internship Coordinator position. Kristin has worked for over a year as the Southeastern Vermont Economic Development Strategies (SeVEDS) Project Manager at the BDCC.

The Six Colleges Collaborative Internship Program works with (1) local businesses, (2) post-secondary student(s) and (3) colleges both in and outside of Vermont. The program works to partner college students and recent graduates with local companies and contribute to Vermont’s economic development, while introducing students to the opportunities that exist here in Vermont. It attracts students from across Windham County, the State, and the Country to start their careers in Southern Vermont, providing work-based learning experiences to students and qualified labor to Windham County’s growing businesses and nonprofits. Currently, five higher education institutions are participating in the program: Community College of Vermont, Landmark College, Marlboro College, School for International Training (S.I.T.) and Vermont Technical College.

Kristin is a Graduate of Keene State College earning a B.A. in Elementary Education and Sociology. She recently obtained her M.S. in Leadership and Human Resources from Northeastern University.

Prior to joining BDCC, she spent several years working in Legal Compliance and Human Resources for a private wealth management firm in Boston, Massachusetts. This will be a great fit given Kristin’s background in client relations, human resources, and the education fields.
