Katie’s Page (US/ICOMOS Intern)

Katie Jacob is our US/ICOMOS Intern, working with Catherine in Heelis.

  • Summer Officially Over Made it back to the States safe and sound.  I landed in DC expecting to have a very American day at the baseball game, but instead it was raining harder than ever had in London, ironically.  While in DC, I spent the week with the other US/ICOMOS interns.  We shared our summer stories and completed ...
  • Last Full Week This week is my last full week in London, and therefore crunch time to get all my case study work finished.  There was, however, more people to meet and places to visit.  London is such a huge a cultural center and besides interning I feel like I have turned into a professional tourist, and still ...
  • Llanfairpwllgwyngyll Hope you had fun trying to pronounce that title.  I know myWelsh is quite horrible. After returning from the Czech Republic, Catherine and I took an impromptu trip to the Bangor in Northern Wales.  While there we toured two National Trust properties, Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd.  After the three hour train we were surrounded by ...
  • Off to the Czech Republic This week I had the opportunity to go visit INTO’s newest member the Czech National Trust. The Czech National Trust recently had its official launch earlier this June, and is a part of my case study project for ‘INTO Action’.  After all the travel hardships to get from London to Prague, I was on the ...
  • London and the NT The last two weeks of my internships included seeing new houses and working towards the completion of case studies that the due date is coming closer and closer too.  Catherine and I took some workday adventures to some National Trust Properties within London.  We explored the Sutton Ho house in Hackney, which was a part ...
  • Half Way Point! I am officially half way finished with my internship with INTO, and hopefully more than half-way finished with my case studies.  This last week brought in more research, and a huge thank you to all the organizations that are answering my questions and participating in the case studies for the “INTO Action” programme. On Monday, ...
  • Learning to Network This week has been a rather calm week compared to the last four weeks of my internship.  This week has been a combination of deskwork and networking.  Monday was an exciting day of meeting and greeting people.  I had the opportunity to shadow Catherine as she gave her INTO presentation to a group of Russians ...
  • Happy Solstice This week I was very lucky to be able to participate in a Public Administration International Conference.  It was a week long course that focused on Heritage, Culture and Tourism: Policy and Practice for Maximizing Results.  The course was hosted by the very knowledgeable June Taboroff.  Our agenda consisted of lectures and presentations in the ...
  • Looking for Fairy Circles As my first week came to an end; I moved most of my stuff out of the English Countryside and into London.  I received a Hot Desk at the National Trusts Grosvenor Gardens location for Monday and Tuesday to work from 9 to 5.  While I did necessary paperwork and research sitting at a desk ...
  • Internship Started After an exciting week in Washington DC with the other eight US/ICOMOS interns with a great orientation provided by Don Jones.  I was off on a seven hour flight to my summer internship with INTO in London.  After the long flight filled with movies and no sleep, I landed at Heathrow Airport.  The quick walk ...
