I grew up on a farm in the rural Yakima Valley and for as long as I can remember I have utilized my imagination and creative thought process to solve problems and create solutions for questions not yet asked. I am currently an undergrad studying Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington and am an active member of the HCDE Student Association as the Cohort Liaison (2016-2017) and the Vice President (2017-2018). I am a part of the business managment with a focus on public relations for the UW Hyperloop team, there I help manage the social media accounts, branding, design tasks, and defining design goals for the team.
I have worked as a lab technician, a project manager, and a makeup artist during summers. I pride myself in my work ethic and ability to pick up new skills and apply them directly to a current problem. I am a hard worker with a drive to make those around me successful, and have found few problems that I have been unable to solve while utilizing my team or creating a creative solution.
