TMS Intern Bids Us Farewell

InternThis was my final week interning at Total Marine Solutions. I would like to thank everyone at TMS for making me feel like part of the team and allowing me to learn so much. It has been an experience I won’t soon forget.

I would also like to thank those outside of TMS who I met during my “field trips” for sharing their knowledge and helping me learn what they do and also about the many opportunities that exist in the maritime world.

I would like to especially thank Alex, Caroline, Val, and Anna for creating this intern position and guiding me through it. The program provided me with an invaluable experience and I am excited to return to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy this fall and use what I have learned.


During my final week I continued pollution regulation gathering efforts. Requesting pollution regulations from ports all over the world has definitely increased the amount of information in the Ocean Guardian database, furthering its development. I am proud to have been a part of it.

I also created and presented a PowerPoint presentation detailing the myriad tasks I have done and the things I learned during my nine-week internship.

On Wednesday, I learned how Marinfloc and Jets products work. The engineering incorporated in these systems is fascinating.

On Friday, it was time to say goodbye with a potluck lunch. It has been an honor to intern with Total Marine Solutions and a pleasure to work alongside so many incredible people.

Thank you TMS!
