Why did you apply for Region H Lieutenant Governor?
I applied for Lt. Governor because after being active in my collegiate and local sections, I wanted to get involved at the region level. As I enjoy working with collegiates and had ties with both schools bidding for the FY2014 Region H Conference, the Lt. Governor role was a big, but exciting next step.
What does SWE mean to you?
SWE means friends, community and hope to me. Through my years with SWE I have forged lasting friendships with amazing women. SWE is also a community where there’s no new problem, only new engineers. If I have a situation that needs outside opinions, I can rest assured that the SWE community can help provide answers. And overall, SWE means hope to me. As someone who discovered engineering as a junior in high school; my main hope is that SWE can reach out to as many girls as possible, to enlighten them on this fantastic career of engineering.
