My Involvement with SWE: I didn’t join SWE until the spring of my freshman year when I volunteered for Girl Scout Patch Days (highly recommend!!). Last year, I was the School Outreach Officer, where my favorite events were the Johnson Controls NEXT Outreach event in Milwaukee and Improv-a-do, and I am now excited to join the Executive Board! I have also attended the SWE Regional Conference the past two years and will be attending the National Conference, WE17, in Austin, TX this October!

Job Experience: Currently a research intern at Epistemic Games Group on campus. I’ve also worked at the CAE Help Desk and Potbelly Sandwich Co. since starting college.

Favorite Thing To Do On Campus: Terrace it up!
