I attended college at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and received my bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering in May of 2011. I started work as a Project Engineer for a company that designs and manufacturers mining equipment. I manage complex projects for customers in the oil sands, power plants, and at mines. The company I work for produces slurry pumps. Slurry is a solid and liquid mixture (we're essentially pumping rocks). Our pumps are very large - think over 10 feet tall, weighing over 100,000 pounds, pumping over 20,000 gallons per minute! I've gotten to go to mines and see dump trucks with tires alone that are 13 feet tall. It's pretty amazing to see equipment on that large of scale. I would love to see more women enter the field!
