Biography
Engineering is a fun, rewarding career with lots of "fringe" benefits such as travel, and possibly even finding the love of your life! Hi, I worked as an Electrical Engineer, Engineering Manager and am now President and co-Founder of Paradise Robotics! I've had a fun and rewarding career working at major companies and I started my own company, too! My first job in engineering was working as a co-op student during college. I learned how to create printed circuit boards and was paid $10 per hour! After receiving my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering I worked for the last American TV company, Zenith. I went to Mexico twice for work. Then I worked for Siemens, a major German company, at one of their US divisions. I designed and built medical imaging electronics with microprocessors and had to work with X-Rays at times. I went to California, Germany and other places, too! Germany was the best! I went to college part time and obtained my Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering while working at Siemens. The best part of my career was the 15 years I worked at Motorola. I met the man who later became my husband on my first day at work! I had many jobs and roles at Motorola. I worked as an engineer and as an engineering manager. I designed circuits and circuit boards, I did integrated circuit design and I became an expert in video compression technology. That is, videos for cell phones. I traveled once or twice a year. Here are some of the places I visited: Texas, California, Washington, Germany, London, Scotland and more! One of the most fun times I had was when I helped launch a new international standard called OpenMax. I met many interesting people from different companies around the world. Then I decided to start my own company, Paradise Robotics, where I work now. It has also been fun and rewarding! I have learned web site design, I find products, I negotiate deals and I help people with their robotic lawn mowers! When I am not working, I spend time with girls learning about robots. I also make interesting art (sometimes with electronics) as a hobby. I play volleyball and I also take care of my family.

    Hi Kathy, I am a freshman in electrical engineering, and I came in with absolutely no previous knowledge. I am almost done with the first semester, and although I am doing well in my classes, I am very unsure of whether or not I would actually like to be an electrical engineer, or if that's where God wants me. Also, I guess the main reason I am in EE is because my counselor in high school recommended engineering, and I like LEDs, persistence of vision, etc. With all that said, I guess my ...

    Mariah,
    
    I am so glad you asked!  Electrical Engineering, like many fields, is very broad.  Some electrical engineers design circuits, while others work in buildings, while others work in power plants.  Some work with lasers and optics, etc.

    I'm going into my Junior year and I just received my grades for sophomore year. I failed two classes and Fall semester I had a terrible semester which lowered my GPA and put me on probation with the College of Engineering. Now, I don't know what to do or what to be. I want to be an engineer but if I'm no good then what's the point. I'm wasting my parents money to fail out of my dream. I would appreciate some advice on what I should do. I'm so disappointed in myself. I want to graduate like I ...
