I recently completed my M.S. degree in Textile Chemistry in the College of Textiles at NC State. I began my undergraduate career studying Fashion and Textile Management and completed my undergraduate degree in Textile Technology with a minor in Materials Science Engineering at NC State. During my graduate studies I worked as a research assistant creating a biofilm resistant finish applied by UV curing sponsored by Nike Inc. I have interned with Cotton Incorporated in the Textile Chemistry Research Department and with Glen Raven’s Sunbrella Custom Fabric division in the Research and Development Department. I was fortunate to work on a couple of projects of my own as well as assist the engineers with various testing and lab work. They were great experiences and taught me a lot about the textile industry, manufacturing, and supply chain; fabric construction; and chemical finishes. The time I have spent earning my degrees has given me the basic knowledge of digital printing, conventional printing, preparation, and dyeing. I am also proficient in Microsoft Office Suite and Adobe Photoshop and love design. As a runner and outdoor enthusiast I am very interested in working for a company that shares my interests.
