Three new interns have joined us here at PYA Waltman Capital this summer! We are excited to introduce you to Claire, Elisheva, and Lincoln!
Claire Covey is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Liberty University with an anticipated graduation date of May 2022. As an intern, Claire provides support for our financial planning engagements by researching and organizing data, as well as preparing presentation material for client meetings. She will also work within the firm’s financial planning software applications and tasked with individual projects to support the firm’s client service. Originally from Southern California, she enjoys days at the beach swimming and playing volleyball with her family. As the second of four kids, she is the family goofball and will do anything to make her siblings laugh. She adores kids and helps with a foster care ministry through her church. She loves making new friends, exploring unknown places, and reading for hours, all fueled by chai oat milk lattes.

Fun Fact: Claire did not eat candy for ten years just to see if she could do it.
