Clubs and activities
I work as a Resident Assistant and as a Peer Mentor. In the past, I have also worked as a tutor. I have studied abroad twice, and I have been involved in Freshmen Leaders in Engineering. I am currently involved in the Society of Women Engineers and Tau Beta Pi.
Valuable hands-on learning
My study abroad experiences were the most valuable. I got to experience diverse cultures and since my lab courses were completed abroad, I got practical experience with the engineering theories I had been studying while abroad.
My internships and co-op were also valuable hands-on learning experiences. They taught me what I did and did not want out of my career and helped me get my post-graduation job.
Most influential mentor
One of the Ch E academic advisors, Matt Brown. Matt had always encouraged me to have as many experiences as possible, whether that be helping with the study abroad process or suggesting classes I may want to take.
Greatest accomplishment at Iowa State
I would consider my tutor groups to be my greatest accomplishment. I loved being able to help fellow students better understand the material in their classes.
Plans after graduation
I will be moving to Cedar Rapids to work for FM Global.
Making my mark on the world
I’m hoping to leave the world a safer place.
Engineering like a Cyclone Engineer
I think the best thing about the Iowa State engineering experience is the relationships I’ve built with my peers. Being an Iowa State engineer is a team effort, and my classmates were essential in navigating the coursework and offered perspectives that will always stay with me.
