In honor of our anniversary, we have invited input and received testimonials from recent interns who shared ways in which Dovetail has impacted their career and personal path:

“I was drawn to Dovetail Partners because I had the privilege of having Dr. Jim Bowyer as professor and the course he taught (along with his integrity and passion) had such a lasting impact on me—it really opened my young eyes. I absolutely love and believe in the mission of Dovetail Partners and the staff has always been exceptionally talented and knowledgeable. I currently work in reviewing Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements and serve on the local Natural Resources Commission. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate and contribute with such an amazing globally important organization.”  - P.F,  2012.

“I loved being an intern at Dovetail while I was an undergrad pursuing my architecture degree and sustainability minor. Dovetail helped me get a further internship opportunity and really had a large impact on my fledgling architecture career! I was and remain incredibly grateful.”  - A.T, 2013.

“Dovetail has always been a supremely knowledgeable and supportive resource in the ~7 years that we've been connected since my internship - connecting me with appropriate resources and guidance and providing insight to people in my network - providing a very broad range of natural resource topics. I currently work for the US Forest Service.”  - L.K, 2015.

"I was lucky enough to land a research internship with Dovetail my first year attending the University and was guided through a semester-long research project exploring urban greening & equity with so much encouragement, thoughtful feedback, and technical guidance. I even published my research in an undergraduate research journal, which has been a big resume highlight. My time at Dovetail provided personal and professional resources and it was a foundational stepping stone in my college and professional career."  - A.S, 2020.

If you’re looking for more information about our impact, you can also read testimonials from past projects and partners at the bottom of our website’s homepage - including this comment from a colleague: “I’ve trusted Dovetail Partners to give me reliable information to inform my research. They provide timely analysis and have the experience and integrity to know how to use it.”
