I'm a recent MSE graduate with hands-on engineering experience including lab work, an internship, and designing both digital and physical prototypes. My leadership positions in Engineers Without Borders has equipped me with the organization and communication skills necessary to work with large groups of people in order to achieve a common goal. I have a work history in radio that has given me a more well-rounded and creative mindset and approach to engineering.
The following year I took the positions of both Treasurer and Membership Coordinator. As Treasurer I designed and implemented our budget for the year, and assisted with all purchases. I applied for funding and successfully petitioned the Bourn's College of Engineering for $1,000 over the maximum grant amount of $1000. I also set up an independent bank account for the club in order to have greater financial independence.
For my final year at UCR I served as Vice President. I helped decide the club's future by creating schedules for each school quarter and organizing our officers to achieve the goals outlined within them. To ensure those goals were achieved I initiated the practice of weekly officer meetings that included agendas, action items, owners, and deadlines. This diligence enabled our engineering projects to make great progress, and helped our Biogas Pococi project team win first place at the Metropolitan Water District Spring Green Expo.
