Close Up
  • Where did you go to school and what degree(s) do you have?
    I attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, where I now work, graduating with a B.S. in computer engineering.
  • What do you like best about being an engineer?
    With some of the projects that engineers take on, there's no way one person could complete them working alone. A project is going to be twenty times better if you pull all the greatest ideas from a lot of great minds.
  • What advice would you give to a young woman considering a career in engineering?
    You can make a lot of money being an engineer. I’ve tried to always remember that no matter how much money I make, I want to make sure I’m happy. You have to find the right fit for yourself.
  • Any other stories or comments you would like to share with EngineerGirl visitors?
