What inspired you to pursue a career in the engineering field?
Because engineers are awesome! As a kid, I liked to tear stuff a part and see how it worked. Today I love designing something and see it come together as a functioning piece of equipment. Seeing something go from paper to reality gives me a sense of accomplishment and it’s pretty cool.

I would definitely be Lucy from “I Love Lucy” because she is so fun and ornery!

Outside of work I love to go four-wheeling, camping, reading, hiking, canoeing – pretty much anything outdoors! I love to be active and have fun!!

My kids and my dog!
