Where did you go to school and what degree(s) do you have?
B.S. and M.S. in packaging engineering, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.
What kinds of activities have typically been part of your work?
I love being an engineer and being really creative...Part of my job is looking at the design and seeing if it’s even feasible, and then looking at the manufacturing process to ensure that these difficult, complex designs are implemented.
What do you like best about being an engineer?
What’s so great about this company is that there is so much collaboration. And even though we have experts in design, everybody here is very creative and has a say in the design.
What advice would you give to a young woman considering a career in engineering?
Find out what you love and get paid for it! Do what you’re best at, what you are successful at, and not what someone else says you could or should be good at.
