Welcome to our new Phoenix interns! 

As Nativa gets settled into the new year, we have also brought on 4 new interns. Interns work on projects that interest them to get hands-on work in the marketing industry through Nativa’s different channels. This semester we have Fallin, Ari, Claire, and Vic to welcome to our Phoenix team.

Let’s take a look at what the interns are up to at Nativa!
