I've had the good fortune to travel often and have lived in fourteen different places over the course of my life. Most recently, home is in Golden, CO where I am wrapping up my MS in Earth Resources Development Engineering at Colorado School of Mines (CSM)– I will graduate in 2021. My research interests include diversity & inclusion in mining, interdisciplinary management, innovative mining equipment development & manufacture, and tunneling.

I graduated from Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA in 2019, majoring in Mechanical Engineering with emphases in Communication, Manufacturing, and Design. I've also studied Structural Geology and Geotechnical Engineering at University College Dublin, in Dublin, Ireland. I have held internships in mining and mechanical engineering and teaching assistantships in mathematics and metals fabrication. I also love contributing to my community, and am an active member of several professional societies and campus committees including the Society of Women Engineers, the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), the SME Young Leaders Committee, the SME Minerals Education Coalition, the CSM Graduate Student Government, and the CSM Diversity, Inclusion, and Access Committee.

Outside of my professional and academic life, I am a classical pianist and vocalist, a professional lapidarist, jeweler, metalsmith, and a hobbyist carpenter and tailor. I also love hiking, caving, and martial arts. Please feel free to check out my other website, if you would be interested in looking at some of my craftsmanship.
