she got an internship for Faris Jewelry, a modern high end jeweler based in seattle. keeley did a little bit of everything for her; from social media management to design, but mainly production. she learned how to design and make jewelry there, a skill she still would like to pursue in the future. at her internship she had a lot of responsibilities, but she grew a lot from the experience.
in october of her gap year she moved to the northern cascades for a month and a half to get her EMT license and Wilderness EMT license along with an MPIC certification. she went through a lot of hard training, all while living in the wilderness. she also used her training to later get a position as a medical assistant for a private practice.
all in all, keeley has done a lot with her life so far, and she has been an amazing friend and inspiration in the months i have known her. i really hope you've found her story interesting! xo shawndiz
