Melody Pierro

Mechanical Engineer

Relevant Experience:1 yr

Education:BS Biomedical Engineering & Mechanical Engineering - Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO

What is your experience in the field?

Throughout my undergrad years I gathered experience working various roles in the Mechanical Engineering field such as engineering intern and lab technician positions. I have now been working at Tensentric one year and hope to learn more about the industry!

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

The best parts about working at Tensentric are both the friendly work environment as well as designing a diverse range of products that will go on to help people in a meaningful way.

If you couldn’t be an engineer, what would you be? Why?

I would likely be a carpenter or blacksmith. Designing swords or outdoor structures sounds exciting and I would love to learn these skills later in life.

What’s the most interesting medical device project you’ve worked on and why?

Through CSU I have been able to contribute to several projects, though the most interesting has been a medical screening device that would analyze users breathe and attempt to identify markers for various diseases.

What hobbies or non-work activities are you most passionate about?

Outside of work I enjoy exploring National Parks and some indoor activities like crocheting, baking, and working on home improvements.

Where are you from and how did you end up in Colorado?

Originally, I am from California, but I have lived in Colorado the past 5 years after moving here to go to College at CSU. I decided to stay in Colorado in order to explore the outdoors on an adult budget!

What do you like most about living in Colorado?

Colorado has the best mountain roads I have ever been on, even my drive to work is filled with views of the Rocky Mountains and it helps to drown out the traffic.

If you could go back in time, where and what time would you travel to and why?

I would have to go back to the renaissance era! If it was anything like the renaissance fairs I used to go to with my family it would be a dream, ideally, I would have a turkey leg in one hand and a sword in the other.

If you had a billion dollars what would you do with it?

If I had a billion dollars, I would build an automated house that I can live in with 50 dogs or something like that. Then I would probably donate the rest to biomedical research and assistive living.
