What drives you to be a BBE Ambassador? 

I believe that BBE is a way to ensure that our environment stays at the center of our concern by applying sustainable concepts to engineering processes. I like that being an ambassador for this program allows me to interact with prospective students as well as the general public to help them better understand what this major is about.

What are your long-term career goals?

I would eventually like to be working in an industrial setting.

What is your favorite thing about our Department?

My absolute favorite thing about the BBE department is the accessibility it offers to find help. The small nature of the major creates a setting where students and faculty work closely together towards a common goal. 

What are your additional extracurricular activities, hobbies and/or interests:

I play intramural volleyball on campus, I'm also involved in student groups, and I enjoy volunteering for a therapeutic horseback riding program near my hometown. 

What is a fun fact about you?

I have been showing horses competitively for 12 years.
