I am looking for a structural engineering position to continue my career in the space industry. Working at two national labs and my Masters in Aerospace Engineering has given me a wide range of experience from satellite design to aircraft analysis and wind turbine testing. In addition to the hands on engineering work I have held leadership positions managing design reviews, team workflow, documentation and developing new technologies. I am a hardworking and patient person who has an appreciation for balancing the highly detailed work of engineering and the systems level view of finishing projects on time. I chose Aerospace Engineering to take on challenging projects and am excited to join your team and start building something great.
