Ambassador Profile

Hey everyone! I am so excited to see some future vols on Rocky Top this semester. 

I grew up loving breaking things down, taking anything I could apart, and figuring out how everything works. This led me to concentrate on engineering at my high school. During the summer after my sophomore and junior year of highschool, I was able to attend HITES which is an engineering camp at the University of Tennessee. I was able to meet professors, tour buildings, and meet current engineering students. This helped me confirm my interest in pursuing an engineering degree at the University of Tennessee. I truly fell in love with the campus, the resources, the opportunities, and of course the people involved with the Tickle College of Engineering.

Now, I am in the Chancellor’s Honors program as well as the Cook Grand Challenge Engineering Honors Program. I am a teaching assistant for the Honors Engineering Fundamentals Program which is a first year course. I am involved on campus in the Society of Women Engineers and I am an active member in Alpha Delta Pi. I have been a mentee and a mentor for the Society of Women Engineers Sweeties program which helped me form study groups, receive helpful advice, and prepared me for the next four years. I did a co-op for Messer Construction as a Project Engineer in Knoxville, Tennessee in the Spring of 2021. I worked with construction documents, conducted inspections, maintained and enforced safety procedures and more. The summer of 2021, I did an internship through the Reliability and Maintainability program (which is also my minor) at Nissan in Smyrna, Tennessee. Here I worked on improving vision systems, programming with ladder logic, improving the assembly process, and more. In my free time I love to run the hills of Knoxville and just walk around campus. 

I have learned so much over the last three years on Rocky Top and I am forever grateful for the Tickle College of Engineering and all the opportunities it has opened for me. I am excited to be back full time for my senior year and can not wait to meet some future engineers! If you have any questions about Honors, Mechanical Engineering, or anything about Tennessee at all, don't hesitate to reach out! Hope to see ya'll soon on Rocky Top.
