What school did you attend, what was your major, and when did you graduate?

I graduated from Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T for short) in May of 2017 with degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Whew, what a mouthful!

What is your current job title?

When did you get involved in SWE?

I was exposed to SWE in college, but didn’t get involved until I met this wonderful group in the fall of 2017.

What are your responsibilities for the Expo?

I am in charge of recruiting the volunteers that make this event run as smoothly as it does! I make the sign-up form and am the main contact for anyone looking to volunteer for the event. I’ll be there the day of the event as well, checking in all of the volunteers and giving them their shirts! I also took on the task of Expo website this year, I hope you like it!

What are some hobbies of yours?

I find joy in reading a nice book on my balcony, trying new recipes in the kitchen, taking online courses to learn new skills, and of course watch way too much YouTube and Netflix.

What’s an interesting fact about you?

I actually live in a refurbished parking garage in downtown Wichita!
