“Working with Heidi as her editorial intern was one of the highlights of my college career. I was able to combine my passions of blogging and design, and gained practical experience that I will carry with me throughout my career. I had the opportunity to intern for three companies in college, and I can say that without a doubt that I got the most out of my time with Spitfiregirl. It was a dream come true for me!” ~ Taylor, Editorial Intern
