Northwestern University

Bachelor of Science, Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences

Northwestern was an incredible and fulfilling (if at times grueling) 4 years. I complemented my undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering with a certificate in Industrial Design and a focus in Global Studies. I spent a lot of time discovering my passions, and even more time figuring out what I didn't like at all (hello, 3 years of Physics). Ultimately, I was blessed with the opportunity to earn a great degree from an incredible school that taught me a lot about academics, and even more about being a human.


United Airlines

Industrial Engineer Analyst

When I was little, I used to watch planes fly over our little farm in Iowa and daydream about where they were going. I was always fascinated by flight and hoped one day to land a career in the airline industry.

I was fortunate enough to land a job at United immediately after I finished school. I am working in their Continuous Improvement department as an analyst and industrial engineer (Think about it as an internal consulting position). My job takes me to the various hubs around the world. I get to meet people from all over the company, from mechanics to the Vice Presidents! In addition, I try to spend 2-3 weekends a month travelling for fun with United's benefits! Denver, Napa Valley, Seattle, Saskatchewan, Sydney, Tokyo, Zurich, Amsterdam, Cairo, Rome... Any other travel suggestions?


Telefonix Inc.

Industrial/Manufacturing Engineer Intern

This was a challenging learning experience. I landed an internship at this small family-owned plant that manufactured seat belts for airplanes. It was far from my dream job, but it was at least related to airlines and I needed experience to prepare for the real world, which was rapidly approaching. I got to apply my skills I was learning in school to a practical environment. I studied processes, worked to improve inefficiencies, and felt like a sponge with all the information I was soaking up.

Thinking Talents

This app helped break my talents into specific components. As an engineer, I wasn't surprised to see my analytical side highlighted, but I was pleased to learn about my storytelling and humor abilities, both of which I picked up as a tour guide at college.
