As a Product Development Engineer living in Charlotte NC 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 for a swim, 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.
