Intern  Makenzie Beam


Hi! My name is Kenzie Beam and I am currently in my last semester of my BSW at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. In the fall, I will be attending University of Wisconsin-Madison to start my MSW.  In my free time, I like to go to cycling classes, walk my dog, and explore new coffee shops and restaurants. I'm excited to learn more about macro social work and to intern with NASW-WI this summer!
