Summary

Edit
I am a Process and Project Engineer for Accu-Precision, a machine shop that produces high precision parts, weldments, and assemblies for a variety of aerospace and industrial companies. In this position, I have an assortment of responsibilities ranging from design for manufacture, reverse engineering, process design, to quality assurance, and shop support. One of the most exciting projects I've headed up at Accu-Precision was a design for manufacture project where I took customer needs and ideas and created a mutually beneficial design that reduced cost of manufacture and met all of those customer's needs. It was particularly rewarding to meet and exceed customer requirements and to do so while meeting or exceeding the manufacturing team's wants and needs as well. I really enjoy collaborating with the design team and manufacturing team to create designs that satisfy both teams' needs. Before I was promoted to my current position, I was an Engineering Intern. As an intern, I worked a large variety of jobs including working in the technical service department reverse engineering customer parts, designing tools and fixtures, and other engineering design work. I also spent time working in the quality assurance lab performing first article inspections and final inspections on parts and assemblies. I truly enjoy what I do and learning new things. I find manufacturing, heavy machinery, metallurgy, and anything mechanical fascinating. My favorite part of my work is learning and studying how things work and finding creative and unique solutions and improvements. I have a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a Mathematics minor from Colorado State University.
