Two new interns have joined the AAG staff this spring! The AAG would like to welcome Ilan and Jennifer to the organization.

Ilan Gritzman recently graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor’s of Science in Public Administration and a minor in Urban and Regional Planning. Ilan has previously interned for Smithsonian Libraries on the World of Maps project, participated in a GIS study abroad in Belize, and served as a research assistant for Citizen Science GIS. He currently also collects and maps data on apartment units across Florida as a city surveyor for One Hundred Feet Inc. Ilan intends to pursue an M.A. in Urban and Regional Planning and secure a full-time position in either urban planning or GIS upon graduation. In his spare time, Ilan likes to cycle, play tennis, travel, and watch sports.

Jennifer Church is a senior at The University of Maryland, pursuing a B.S. in Environmental Science and Policy with a concentration in Land Use and a minor in Nonprofit Leadership and Social Innovation. After graduation, Jennifer hopes to have the opportunity to travel before applying for a Masters program in Geography. In her spare time, she enjoys skiing, kayaking, and embroidering.

If you or someone you know is interested in applying for an internship at the AAG, the AAG seeks interns on a year-round basis for the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Currently, due to COVID-19 safety regulations in Washington, DC AAG interns are home-based employees.
