Amanda Rosenfeld

Hello, this is Amanda Rosenfeld. Typically, you would find me in the warmer weather of the Miami office, but I am currently an Xchange Fellow in the Dallas office for the last quarter of the year. I have already been in “Big D” for a month and a half, and boy does time fly.

Melissa Williams, HKS Salt Lake City

Hello again! ...I can’t believe that it’s already the final week of my time here in London. These last three months have been nothing short of incredible, and I’d like to thank HKS again for the opportunity to experience our firm abroad. In honor of everyone that has commented on my ‘top 10’ lists, I’m turning my entire final blog into a list of ‘fun facts’ I’ve learned while living in London:

Part two is a continuation of my journey in and around Washington, D.C.Article Six: PhiladelphiaMy next adventure took place in another important historical city, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As I passed by their downtown and made my way through William Penn's city, it was pretty incredible to think that I was walking the same streets as some of our greatest Founding Fathers. The Liberty Bell was very iconic, as well as some of large museums and squares. One of my favorite pieces there – other than the mouthwatering cheesesteak I waited in line for over an hour to get – was the Reading Terminal Market. What an incredible urban addition. The marketplace is buzzing with people and action from the moment you enter. Restaurants, butchers, produce, shops ... I felt like I was transplanted to a European marketplace.

Melissa Williams, HKS Salt Lake City

After two months of living abroad and working in our London office, I’m finally starting to feel like I’ve established a routine so that life feels less chaotic and (slightly) more normal. Somewhere around week 6, I began referring to the flat as “home,” which to me signals the mental transition between adjusting and adjusted. As further confirmation, I catch myself using ‘cheers’ rather than ‘thank you’ and pronouncing ‘week end’ as two distinct words.

Melissa Williams, HKS Salt Lake City

Hi everyone, Melissa Williams here in London for the Q3 Xchange! I’m a Utah transplant (originally from the Midwest), and you can normally find me in our Salt Lake City office. However, for the third quarter of this year, HKS has given me the opportunity to experience our firm abroad in the incredible city of London. I arrived just over a month ago to the Chelsea flat in proper London style—jetlagged in the back of a black cab—and was welcomed to my new home by Natasha Kemp. Previous London ‘Xchangers’ had clued me in about the poshness of the area, but I had no idea how lovely the flat itself would be. So, thanks to HKS, I get to spend the next three months living in the heart of Central London on the banks of the Thames, in easily the nicest place I’ve ever lived.

At the core, the clinical environment is a workplace. Every role – be it an office manager, medical assistant or physician – has daily functions that intertwine and affect overall patient satisfaction.

Catherine Cao, Shanghai office

Nihao, my name is CC from the HKS Shanghai office. I grew up in Beijing, the nation’s capital where I began studying architecture. After undergraduate, I went to the UK for graduate school, and have been working as an architect in China for 6 years. This is my first time working in the U.S., so I really appreciate the opportunity to participate in the HKS Xchange Fellowship.
