Fun Fact

I am from the Watermelon Capital of the world!

Why did you choose UGA? 

UGA would prepare me for the technical side of my career, but also provide an environment that would connect me with students and faculty from a variety of specialties and backgrounds. (Not to mention, my first campus tour was pretty convincing as well!)

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

Some of my favorite memories have been made making new friends at our Society of Women Engineers events (and helping decorate for them!), my favorites being our brunch, Chili Cookoff, and our first End-of-the-Year Banquet. I also enjoyed working with friends on statics problems in Dr. Carnell's office hours sophomore year.
