After graduating in Cody, Wyo., I came to the University of Wyoming with the goal of getting a degree in international studies. After the first year in the program, I recognized those goals were not a good fit for my future, so I took a year off to backpack Europe and Australia. After traveling, I realized that I wanted a challenging career path where I could become a problem solver to help meet the world’s rising energy needs. I chose petroleum engineering, and it was the best decision of my life. This industry is so exciting, with incredible opportunities for success. I spent last summer in Fort Worth, Texas, interning with EOG Resources and I will return to work for them in Midland, Texas, this summer. At UW I am actively involved in Society of Petroleum Engineering (SPE) and I was the 2014-15 SPE president. I am also involved with American Association of Drilling Engineers and Tau Beta Pi. Being involved in extracurricular activities has allowed me to travel all over the country and the world to places like Denver, San Antonio, Houston, Oklahoma City, New Orleans and Amsterdam. After graduating in May 2016, I will pursue a job in the industry. While I do not have plans to get a master’s in engineering, I have considered an MBA. Thanks to the University of Wyoming, I feel fully prepared to be successful as a petroleum engineer.

After graduating high school in Cheyenne, Wyo., I knew that the University of Wyoming would be the best school for me. I knew I would receive a good education in a more personalized learning setting. I am currently a sophomore undergraduate in chemical engineering, minoring in the honors program. The course load is challenging, but it’s also incredibly rewarding to see what I’ve accomplished academically. The job I’ve been dreaming of for years is one within a cosmetic company, but I am more than open to exploring my options. I have recently accepted an internship with Western Research Institute at the Heavy Oil Technology Center here in Laramie. I’m very excited to be exploring this facet of chemical engineering. During my free time on campus I am largely involved in the Society of Women Engineers. After previously serving as Joint Engineering Council representative, I was recently elected the Vice President. I love SWE because it is one of the few organizations within in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences that incorporates all of the different majors. I am also a member of American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

I am currently a BS/MS student in architectural engineering at the University of Wyoming. I will be finishing up my bachelor’s degree this year with minors in sustainability and the honors program, and will also be working towards a master’s degree in architectural engineering through the Quick Start Program. My interest is in the sustainability and efficiency of buildings and I enjoy taking classes with an emphasis on building energy and mechanical systems. I am currently a Resident Assistant on campus and I participate in a number of extracurricular activities such as the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. In summer 2014, I participated in a study abroad trip to England, France, and Spain with the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering. I have also participated in a summer internship with a local company’s preconstruction department and have worked on undergraduate research with faculty of the CAE. After I graduate from UW, my dream is to live and work in England in an international firm dedicated to advancing the sustainability of buildings and building systems.

I originally came to the University of Wyoming to study Spanish. I soon found that my love for languages was not as fulfilling as I’d hoped and found out about all of the amazing projects upon which my engineering friends were working. After exploring more options, I made the switch from civil to electrical engineering. I will be starting my third year of electrical engineering in fall 2015. I have had the opportunity to be a part of a water filter project in Nicaragua in 2012 and traveling to Guatemala on the assessment team in January 2014. Outside of engineering, I frequently return to Nicaragua to help translate and assist other various projects. I also help lead worship at Emmaus Road Community Church in Laramie. In my free time, I like to spend time outdoors, working out, reading and practicing photography. The staff in the College of Engineering has been phenomenal at supporting the students and are a huge part of the reason I am continuing in this field. Engineering is one of the hardest and most rewarding decisions I have ever made. Fortunately, I can still use my Spanish by adding an international option on my degree and I plan to study abroad in the future. It’s a challenging field of continuous learning, but that’s what makes it worth it.

I am a transfer student at the University of Wyoming. Being native to Cody, Wyo., I knew I wanted to stay in the Rocky Mountains while attending college. I first attended Montana Tech in Butte, Mont., for two years studying petroleum engineering. My sophomore summer, I decided I wanted to pursue chemical engineering. Being a Wyoming native, it was an easy decision to transfer to the University of Wyoming due to the financial support offered at UW. Throughout college I have been involved in Society of Women Engineers, Society of Petroleum Engineers, Engineers Without Borders, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, as well as club and intramural sports. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering I plan to attend dental school. Although transferring schools has postponed my graduation date by one year, I am very happy with my decision as it has given an opportunity to see engineering with a different perspective. I have had several internships, mostly in the petroleum field working in industry. Most recently I conducted biomedical research in the INBRE program for Montana State University.

I am a native of Rock Springs, Wyo., and a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering with a graduate minor in statistics. I completed an undergraduate degree in 2013 in electrical engineering with a minor in mathematics. I'm an artist, engineer, motocross racer, traditional archer and avid fly fisher at any given time. However, a passion for signal processing and electric power has given me guidance in my scholastic and professional career, which is how I found myself in my current position as a graduate student under Dr. John Pierre. I’ve had several internships, including a position at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M., and as a research, teaching and peer assistant at UW. In addition to my work and scholastic undertakings, I devote much of my time to leadership roles in organizations on and off campus, including Tau Beta Pi, the University Fly Fishing Club, Laramie Dirt Riders Association, High Plains Archery Club and IEEE. I like to think that it is impossible to do great things without surrounding yourself with great people. I’ve been fortunate enough to find people who are not only eager to provide support and inspiration, but also put up with my quirkiness without protest. To those people, I’m most grateful.
