Ava Keegan, work experience

Ava Keegan

Work Experience Graduate

‘When I was starting out doing work experience for iOWNA, I was worried that my lack of medical knowledge would put me at a disposition within the team however, I soon learned that within the iOWNA team you do not need to have a knowledge of medicine. I have helped with uploading content to the iOWNA database and various other tasks such as branding and research. One of the parts I really enjoy about iOWNA is the fact that they include everyone no matter if you have been a part of the company long or not. Another aspect of the team that is necessary to mention is the friendliness of everyone a part of the team. When I joined everyone was so welcoming and was willing to help me get settled and learn how different parts of the company works. Now that I am an intern, I look forward to continuing this experience and learning even further how a company such as iOWNA works.’
