Experiences: research, varsity athlete, ChemE organizations

I transferred from Midland College, Texas. Since I got to Michigan Tech, meeting other students has been helpful to take advantage of all the opportunities the university has to offer. As a peer mentor, I want to help students that are in the same position I was once.

Michigan Tech offers its students many different opportunities to grow and make the most of their college experience. I have completed an eight month co-op with Amcor and have been involved and participated in different organizations and events across campus. I was also an RA for three semesters in Wadsworth Hall. I am very excited to meet the incoming students this year, and share my experience. As a peer mentor, I am looking forward to helping students succeed in their time at Michigan Tech and encourage them to take advantage of the many opportunities on campus.
Hometown: Kalamazoo, MI
Interests: kayaking, running, piano, cooking, dogs
Experiences: transfer student, pre-med, co-op, undergraduate research, undergraduate grader, resident assistant, ChemE Student Advisory Board
Through my experiences at Michigan Tech, I feel that I have seen many different aspects of campus, including Residence Education as an RA, Career Fair as a prospective co-op, inside the laboratory as an undergrad researcher, and more. Michigan Tech has a lot of resources that students don’t always know to utilize. As a peer mentor, I hope to help students find those resources as well as help them learn more about their own interests.

Michigan tech has so many resources and opportunities for students to take advantage of and being a part of the peer mentorship program, I want to help students navigate through their time here at Michigan Tech and within the chemical engineering program.
