About Me: "I am very outgoing and enjoy new experiences. Thriving on a work hard, play hard mentality and seeking new opportunities typically directs my daily activities. I have enjoyed participation in two collegiate varsity sports and am very competitive, but work well with others."
Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "The Master of Engineering Management successfully integrates the skills necessary to succeed in the high tech world we live in today. When facing new challenges I always try to keep my eye on the bigger picture to understand not just how systems work, but how they fit into other systems. The cross-disciplinary curriculum enables its students to open their scope and understand many facets of an entire organization and their market. The flexibility of the M.E.M. program allows students to take classes in a variety of disciplines to improve their skill set in areas necessary for future success."
