Sarah Laird Hometown: Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

Previous Degrees: B.A. in Physics, Vassar College; B.E. in Engineering Sciences, Dartmouth College

About Me: "I'm from Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada and the friendly atmosphere of Hanover reminds me of home. Hanover is a great place to enjoy all four seasons. In the warmer months I enjoy hiking and in the winter I enjoy skiing (even thought the snow isn't quite as good as in Canada)."

Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "The main thing that drew me to the M.E.M. program was the idea that I would be able to take my technical background and apply it to the business world. My undergraduate degree was focused on environmental engineering and I hope to use my M.E.M. degree to blend sustainable behavior with economically profitable business practices. The M.E.M. is a great program, offering students a wide range of electives to tailor their program to fit their individual interests."
