Hoeven Welcomes Interns to His Washington, Fargo Offices

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that he has welcomed Taylor McMillin to his Washington, D.C. office and Megan Gilbertson to his Fargo office. The interns work with the senator and his staff on a variety of legislative, communications and administrative projects.

“Internships provide young people with the opportunity to gain professional experience while also getting an inside look at our legislative process,” Hoeven said. “My staff and I are happy to welcome Taylor and Megan to the team, and appreciate their enthusiasm and willingness to become involved in public service. We hope the skills that they learn will help them achieve their educational and career goals.”

Taylor McMillin, daughter of Alex and Brenda McMillin, graduated from Roseau High School in 2013. She is currently a junior at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. where she is majoring in Political Science and Global Studies. After graduation, she hopes to attend graduate school pursuing political communication. She eventually plans to earn her Ph.D. and teach. 

“I am looking forward to experiencing the political process firsthand through my internship with Senator Hoeven, and I am excited for the learning opportunities that it presents.”

Megan Gilbertson of Breckenridge, Minn. has been hired as an intern in Hoeven’s Fargo office. Gilbertson, daughter of Matt and Diane Gilbertson, is currently a junior at North Dakota State University, majoring in political science with a public-service concentration.

While at North Dakota State University, Gilbertson has been involved with the Habitat for Humanity group on campus while also taking on the role of president of the Model United Nations club. Gilbertson spends her free time volunteering at the YWCA’s emergency shelter in Fargo.

“I have been interested in politics since high school, and I am thrilled to be given an opportunity to work closely with Senator Hoeven and his staff members,” said Gilbertson. “The knowledge I gain from this experience will allow me to attend law school and work in politics in the future.”
