Meet Leah: Our Communications Intern

Hi there! My name is Leah Vitelli and I’m the Communications intern at DSAGSL for this spring! I’m a part time student at UMSL as well as a full time momma to my one year old son, Nicholas. I’m set to graduate December of this year and I’m so excited to start my career in communications!

At DSAGSL, I have been behind the scenes, posting on social media, as well as creating flyers and videos, and taking pictures of events at the office! I love interning here because it is such a relaxed, easy going place. Everyone is so welcoming and I never felt out of place or unwelcomed. Abigail has been amazing at answering all my questions and teaching me how to use different websites and applications for posting on social media. I love being able to work with self-advocates and learning new things about Down Syndrome from them. This internship has been such a great opportunity, gives me fantastic experience, and I can’t wait to see what else DSAGSL brings me!
