Special Events Co-Chair

Year: Junior
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Hometown: Mankato, Minnesota

About Me: Being a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has opened my eyes in so many different ways. I grew up on a farm in southern Minnesota, so living in a city has been a huge adjustment. The opportunities that had become available to me here are unlike anything I could have ever dreamed of. Everyday, I am giving the opportunity to find out more about who I am and how I want to build the future ahead of me.

My Involvement with SWE: This is my second year as Special Events Co-Chair. SWE has introduced me to so many amazing people and activities these past two years. I cannot imagine my college experience without being a SWE Member.

Job Experience: This summer I had the opportunity to work as an intern for MA Mortenson Construction. I worked on the new soccer stadium being build in St. Paul. When I was in high school, I also had a job working on a golf course as a beverage cart assistant.

Favorite Thing To Do On Campus: My favorite thing to do on campus is enjoy the beauty of the city. I love going on runs on lakeshore path and enjoying the lake views along the way!

Favorite Class/Professor: So far, my favorite class has been thermodynamics with Professor Miller. It was the most challenging class that I have ever taken, but I learned more in that class than I even thought was possible.

Favorite Babcock Ice Cream Flavor: S’mores!!!!!!

Other Activities/Organizations: I am an active member in my sorority that I lived at last year. I am also a member of Women in Mechanical Engineering, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and Greek Intervarsity. I’m hoping to become even more involved next year on campus by helping my friends start their own organization.
