Off- Campus Experience

Research Assistant at the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping: I spent a semester at UNH working in their ocean engineering department. I was able to design and build a working single-beam SONAR device that will be used to map shallow ocean floors.

On-Campus Experience

Pep Band: I play the flute in the Pep Band, and I was the manager for the 2018-2019 school year! I love playing at hockey games and going on road trips.

LEAP (Leadership Educators Advising Peers): I have been trained to be a facilitator for experiential learning activities that focus on group dynamics, communication, and problem solving skills.

2021 Class Council: I am the Class of 2021 President! The class councils plan all events throughout the year for their classes, and plan all of the senior week events.

Admissions Ambassador: Give tours to prospective students and serve as a panelist at events.

Favorite Class

My favorite class was Engineering Processes, where I learned how to use machine shop tools like the drill press and the lathe.
