A bit about me:

Nearing the end of my career at MMSTC, I was torn on my college decision. I was debating attending Wayne State on full scholarship, or UofM and likely having quite a bit of loans. I ended up going to UofM and about 5 years later, I could not be happier with my decision! Many of you may be in a similar situation, so reach out to me if you want to hear how I came to make my decision, and how it worked out for me as time progressed!

 I was planning to major in Mechanical Engineering, but switched routes my freshman year and decided to major in Aerospace Engineering. After a couple internships and living in California for a summer, I realized I wanted to stay in Metro Detroit, so senior year I hit recruiting with the intent to land a job in the area I grew up. Here I am a year later, and I am working full time at the GM Tech Center in Warren!If you have any questions about my experience or any questions related to the topics listed below, feel free to reach out to me via email!
