What made you choose your career path?:
I had an affinity for numbers at an early age. As a matter of fact, it runs in the family. I have been surrounded by numbers all of my life. My mom and my sister excelled at math, so I grew up with crazy mathematician ladies. 😊
Why are you interested in SWE and what goals do you envision for the club as a faculty advisor?:
I am interested in SWE because for me it is vitally important to support other women in engineering, to let them know they’re not alone, and to help prepare them to succeed in whatever career they choose. While I know prospective future women engineers are coming to SDSU in record numbers, I would like to focus on retaining those students in the discipline and making sure they have the resources and access necessary to succeed. Recruiting women in engineering is easy, but retention is crucial.
