I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. During my undergrad, I interned at Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, GA in the Quality Assurance Department. After graduation, I took a job in the Verizon Leadership Development Program. This was not a job that was in my mechanical engineering discipline but was still in the engineering field and allowed me to travel and do a different job each year for four years. In the program I have had rotations as a System Performance Engineer in Little Rock, AR, a Project Manager in Basking Ridge, NJ, an Implementation Engineer in Charlotte, NC and an Operations Supervisor outside Philadelphia, PA. After the program I took a role as a Small Cell Equipment Engineer in New Jersey. I am currently on the 5G Ecosystem Team managing various ecosystems where we are trying to find use cases for 5G. I also just completed my M.B.A from University of Massachusetts Amherst.
