Biography

I am a Test Engineer with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Engineering. I develop software applications and hardware to test the different components that make up the Ground Penetrating radar systems my company manufactures. One of the things I love about engineering is solving problems. I have a 5 year old daughter and am excited to get her interested in math and science as she grows up. She recently has joined the Girl Scouts and I am a volunteer. I hope to be able to bring fun ideas from a engineering, math and science prospective to the troop.
