Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2008
Aerospace/Jet Engines

Engineering is getting a degree in problem solving. As a stay-at-home-mommy I use those skills everyday!

I am an aerospace engineer.  I worked for Pratt & Whitney in the Flight Test group for the F35 Joint Strike Fighter military jet.  I looked at the jet engine data after a test flight and made sure the thermocouples and pressure transducers inside the engine behaved normally and trended with the predictive simulations I ran.  We then sent the approval to the government so they knew the engine was working as expected and that they can safely move on to the next test flight.

I'm currently a full-time stay at home mom which I LOVE.  I married my best friend who I met in my ME classes.  We have a 3.5 year old little girl and 16 month identical twin girls.  I really enjoyed my time in the engineering world and I’m thankful for the critical thinking and problem solving skills I gained during my time in the work force.
