My name is Kristin and I am a Mining Engineer. I decided in high school I wanted to become an engineer after liking math and science but not having the stomach for medicine. After deciding that mining was the field for me, I went to Colorado School of Mines specifically for it. After graduation, I decided to go into equipment and started work with Caterpillar. I spent 2.5 years in marketing, and now work as an EXPAT in Australia with the Autonomous Haulage Program. I enjoy traveling, backpacking, hiking, and adventures on my time off. I am also working to complete my masters in Mining Engineering online.
