Biography

I became interested in engineering in middle school when I attended a summer camp for young women in middle school geared toward raising interest in engineering. After this program, it was very clear to me that I wanted to become an engineer, which is a decision I am very proud of! I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in May 2012 with a B.S. in Environmental Engineering. I moved to New York City immediately after graduating to start my first job at a small engineering firm where I helped with the designs for groundwater wells, water mains, sewers, and drinking water storage tanks. I am now working for a much larger engineering consulting firm in New York City. My job here involves a lot of different things, including construction management, drinking water treatment designs, helping with electrical designs, and flood resiliency designs. I have been fortunate enough to work on several projects to help rebuild New York City and Long Island following the damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. I am very passionate about what I do and especially about encouraging young women to pursue careers in engineering and science. Engineers are very important in shaping the societies we live in, so it is critical that we have women engineers bringing their ideas and perspectives to the table as well as men's.

Also I have seen messages saying that the ...
