Bio

Thank you for viewing my profile! I currently work as a Maintenance Area Supervisor at FCA's Warren Stamping plant, in addition to being a Research Assistant in the Sheet Metal Lab at Oakland University. I will be completing my Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering (Oakland University) in April 2018. I will then be pursuing my Masters in Mechanical Engineering degree at Oakland University, starting in May 2018.

I am also a Private Pilot (pursuing Instrument rating), with over 275 hours of logged flight time. I am the former Vice-President (just completed my term in January 2018) of the local Women in Aviation Chapter, and am currently the Membership Chair. I am also an avid member of the Ninety-Nines, International Organization of Female Pilots, and a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.

I was recently named Oakland University's "Inspirational Engineering Undergraduate" and featured in the OU Engineering Magazine. I was also selected to receive the Oakland University Undergraduate Research Award, in January 2018.

I have published in the Society of Automotive Engineers Journal; a publication titled "Aluminum Springback Study". I was also presented with the honor of presenting at the 2017 SAE World Congress, in addition to the May 2017 North American Deep Drawing Research Group Seminar.
