I received my B.S.E.E. at the UMSL/Washington University joint program in St. Louis, Missouri. I chose electrical engineering because of my love for math. After graduating, I began working in the MEP department at an engineering consulting firm in Greater Chicago, Patrick Engineering. I work on the analysis and recommendation of electrical power distribution in new and existing systems. In summary, I am an outgoing & trendy electrical design engineer. Fashion forward, focused, and driven. Here to prove that you can have the best of both worlds as a young professional female :)
  • I am willing to be contacted by educators for possible speaking engagements in schools or in after school programs or summer camps.
  • I am willing to serve as a sponsor or coach for an engineering club or team.

Wow, you sound like a brilliant little lady.  I would recommend that you create a website that you can update regularly with your work.  By doing this, you'll be able to track the progress of your projects over time.  You could probably easily build a site on your own.  I would suggest using Wordpress and googling tutorials ("Wordpress for beginners"), but if you use a site that allows you to download a template for free, you can easily set up your own site (your own personal website, something like "".  If this is too much work, or too difficult - you could ultimately even instagram your work, use Tumblr, or use Twitter (social media).  After you set up your internet or social media site, begin to follow users who are big in the engineering world.  They will likely retweet your posts if you use the right hash tags to make your posts visible to them.  I would love to hear more about your future endeavors; please keep us updated.

Respectfully yours,
