What is your experience in the field?

Tensentric is the first place I have worked in this field, and I have learned so much here.

What do you like about working at Tensentric?

I love coming to work every day and getting to engage with interesting, knowledgeable, collaborative, and kind people.

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

If I couldn’t be an engineer, I would want to be a high school math teacher. Both of my parents were school teachers and I loved seeing how involved they were with the community, and how they got to share their passions with their students.

What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?

I am a creative and collaborative thinker, so I enjoy finding multiple different solutions to a given problem. I work efficiently but remain detail oriented and open minded throughout the process.

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

I love traveling to new places and spending time outdoors, skiing, backpacking, and hiking. I also spend a lot of time painting, drawing, and salsa dancing!

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I remember being torn between wanting to find a cure for cancer and wanting to be an art teacher.

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

I grew up in Carbondale, Colorado, which is a small mountain town on the western slope. I made my way to Boulder for college and love living here.

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

I would like to go back to ancient Egypt and watch as the pyramids were built. We have pretty solid theories now of how they were constructed, but I still think it is one of the most remarkable feats of engineering ever.
