Here’s what former interns are saying about their experience at the Nashville Wine Auction:

Natasha Co | Summer 2022 Intern

“Interning at the Nashville Wine Auction was an impactful experience that inspired me to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector. Every day brought new opportunities to learn and enabled me to make a meaningful impact in the community. This was an experience that not only deepened my knowledge of wines but also allowed me to learn more about operations, marketing, and event planning.


The Nashville Wine Auction will forever hold a special place in my heart as a catalyst for personal growth and a testament to the remarkable unity that wine can inspire.”

Trevor Pearl | Spring 2022 Intern

“Interning at the Nashville Wine Auction was truly one of the highlights of my Vanderbilt experience. So rarely in life do we get a chance to work hard, have fun, build meaningful relationships, and do profound good for the community, yet this is exactly the kind of experience the NWA provides. The most valuable moments of the internship to me were the couple of long days and late nights we spent executing a fantastic Pairings Gala.


The team is fantastic, the work is fulfilling, and I would highly recommend interning at the Nashville Wine Auction to any student who is looking to get more out of their Capstone than simply completing a graduation requirement.”

Chloe Barbour | Fall 2022 Intern

“Working at Nashville Wine Auction was an incredibly rewarding experience on many levels. It was inspiring to witness the power of collective action and generosity, through each of the events that the team was able to put on. So, not only was I able to learn about marketing and event planning, but I was also immersed in the world of wine and philanthropy which quickly became newfound passions of mine.


Just knowing that working here means that you are directly impacting the future of cancer research, treatment, and support brings a profound sense of purpose to the work. So, that coupled with the amazing personality of the NWA team really made my intern experience one of the best.”
