Even as a child, I was often found assembling my own creations out of Legos or taking apart the metal centipede toy to figure out what made the little legs go around in circles. I found joy in challenging my older brother to complete one of his minute math assignments quicker than I could. I naturally gravitated towards a career in engineering, lighting up with excitement when I was asked to disassemble and reassemble a lawnmower engine and make sure it still worked in my intro to Mechanical Engineering course in college.
I have a variety of expertise from my diverse background including attention to detail and quality control from the aerospace industry, a sense of urgency in quick and accurate task completion from the refining industry and entrepreneurship from an industrial start-up. I know when each attribute is appropriate and how to balance being detail oriented with working efficiently.
