Class of: 2015



Why I chose Purdue?
I chose Purdue for their strong reputation for producing very competent engineers with many job prospects after graduation.

Why I chose Engineering and BME?
I chose engineering because I wanted to solve problems that have never been solved before.  I was always fascinated with the medical field and anatomy and physiology and I found the perfect combination of my interests in Biomedical Engineering.

Extra-curricular activities:
Through my time at Purdue, I have been involved in both the Women in Engineering program and the Society for Women Engineers.  Also, I have served on a committee for Purdue Dance Marathon and am very active in my sorority, Gamma Phi Beta.

Engineering-related experience/CO-OP/Intern/Research
I worked this past summer at a food packaging plant, in the project engineering department.  I am also researching under Professor Tamara Kinzer-Ursem, currently working on a genetic engineering project.

Post-graduation plans
I plan to work in industry after graduation.
