As a Product Development Engineer living in Charlotte I love to find new adventures to take with my Aussie Kona. Whether we are packing up to go hiking through the Smokey Mts., suiting up to go paddle boarding, or finding a nice quiet spot to do some yoga in the park. We are always finding an excuse to be outdoors. I welcome new challenges with open arms. I have taken some scary leaps in order to better my future but hard decisions and a touch of risk often yield to the best rewards. Since graduation my focus has been in medical compression and I hope to continue utilizing that knowledge in my role as Development Engineer at Polartec. My goal in life and in my career is to improve the lives of the consumer. I have just barely scratched the surface of my potential as a material developer and I look forward to continuing to take on new challenges in the future.
