Fun Fact

I have visted 14 countries so far.

Why did you choose UGA? 

UGA has an incredible variety of opportunities and supports a wide range of interests. Being someone who has always been interested in a broad number of topics, I knew I needed a place that had the capacity to specialize in everything. Whatever the niche interest may be, it is likely that you'll find a passionate group of students about that same subject at UGA. I knew that I would be able to explore everything that excites me here at UGA, and I was confident that when I chose a certain path, that I would get an excellent education no matter the choice.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

Through the Society of Women Engineers student organization, we were able to tour the Janssen Pharmaceutical plant here in Athens and get an in-depth, behind the scenes look at how many pharmaceutical and surgical products are manufactured. We also had dinner with a number of representatives from Janssen. It was a really fun and fascinating opportunity to learn from working professionals.
