Meet the Intern: Claire Morris

Jun 19, 2019


Claire Morris


Virginia Tech




Outside of school I enjoy hiking, running, and yoga. I love traveling and trying new things. I also love the Harry Potter books and Doctor Who. I love cats (my friends think I may become a crazy cat lady).


I am interested in construction because I love seeing my ideas come to life. Ever since I was young, I have been particularly fascinated with creating buildings in particular. My favorite thing was to build doll houses and castles all out of cardboard and hot glue.


My long term career goal is still a little bit vague. Right now I think I want to work as a project manager somewhere. I would like to someday run my own engineering firm. I hope this internship will help me solidify my desired career path.
