This fall we have added some new faces to our Philanthropy and Outreach Teams! Introducing our amazing Interns!


Hi, my name is Harlee Edwards and I am interning in the philanthropy department! I chose the WCA for my internship because I believe in our mission, I am passionate about helping people, and my mom actually interned here when she was my age attending BSU as well. I am looking forward to learning more about the services that the WCA offers, how I can help spread our message, and growing my professional skills by working on various philanthropic projects. A fun fact about me that people might not know is that I LOVE chocolate ice cream with rainbow sprinkles!



Hi! My name is Eliza Colby, and I am a senior at Boise State University studying Criminal Justice and Family Studies. I picked the WCA for my internship because I am passionate about helping others and that is what the WCA is all about! I am excited to learn more about ways we can reach out to survivors at the WCA. An interesting fact about me is that I am an Irish dancer, and have been training with a local team for almost 12 years now!




Hi! I’m Maddie Corey. I chose the WCA for my internship because I have always heard about how great of an organization it is. I want to be involved in bringing awareness to the important and complex issue that is domestic violence. I’m looking forward to learning the ins and outs of a non-profit since I want to work in the non-profit world when I graduate. An interesting fact people may not know about me is that I love rollerblading in my free time.




Hi! I’m Katie Hampton and I am a Communications Intern here at the WCA. I’m in the Honors College at Boise State majoring in Communications with a minor in Psychology, Business and Leadership & HR certificates. I grew up in Boise enjoying the great outdoors and am currently the Climbing Gym Manager and a Trip Leader at Boise State’s Outdoor Program. When I’m not studying on campus or at the WCA, you can find me climbing, whitewater kayaking, or skiing!

As a senior in my final year of my undergrad, I wanted to get some hands-on experience involving what I was studying in school and found this internship through one of my professors who knew Chris and highly recommended this internship. I have a strong desire to give back to a community that’s given me so much, and I’m very blessed to be working with the wonderful Outreach and Communications staff at the WCA this semester. Something a lot of people might not know about me is that I am a huge history nerd! I love learning about the stories of the past and how different individuals or groups of people got to where they are. One of my favorite places in Boise is the Anne Frank Memorial next to the Bill Wassmuth Center for Human Rights because I think it is very unique to Boise and is a powerful place to learn about the history of human rights activism in our state and around the world.

Rebecca (Becca) Rodack has a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Pittsburgh. She finished a year serving as a WCA Outreach Coordinator with theRebecca R - JV outreach coordinator 2020 Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest at the end of July 2020. Becca fell in love with Boise and recognized her desire and in doing communications, outreach and development work for nonprofit and is now doing a fall internship with the WCA to earn more experience and gain connections as she works to secure a permanent position locally. She’s working on digital content, media and social media campaigns and honing her skills with the Communications Manager while learning more about development and fundraising for nonprofits.
