HOMETOWN: Sheboygan, WI

SWE INVOLVEMENT: I joined SWE my first week of freshman year and instantly became involved with SWE International Outreach. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go with SWE to Jodphur, India in January of 2019. We volunteered at local Women’s Empowerment Centers implementing STEM workshops and got to meet so many amazing, inspiring women and girls who really embodied the meaning of empowerment. I learned a lot from them. The trip was so enriching and impactful for me that I decided to travel again with SWE International Outreach to Mutungo, Uganda in January 2020; I had the opportunity to volunteer at a youth camp and help teach on subjects such as English and hygiene. The people I had the chance to work with were some of the kindest and most-welcoming I’ve ever met- I will forever be thankful for the moments I spent there and hope to return one day.

In terms of previous positions held, I was the 2019-2020 ‘Marketing Officer’ where I helped to update our social media platforms with innovative content and visually appealing designs. I am also a member of the Boeing Tech team; this past project we worked on a water filtration device for AbbVie. You can also find me at most of our Professional Development Events!

JOB EXPERIENCE: The past two summers I have worked at Curt G. Joa, Inc. as a Purchasing Intern in my hometown of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I am also an Intellectual Property Legal Intern at CERES Patent & Technology; I get to help craft technical documentation and work on patent and copyright deliverables. I am now interning at Tesla as a Technical Writing Intern in their Energy Products Department!

FAVORITE THING TO DO ON CAMPUS: I’m always at Union South (always) with at least one coffee in hand. I also love to hangout at Memorial Union and sit by the lake with some friends.
