I have been a part of the executive board of RPI’s chapter of the Society of Women Engineers since my freshman year. I have served as a Freshman Representative, Engineering Event Director, Summer Arch Representative, and Membership Director. In these roles, I have planned over 20 events to foster a community in support of women in STEM on campus. I also organized Exploring Engineering Day in 2022 and am working to strengthen our section’s connection with societal SWE. I am also an Engineering Ambassador and enjoy the opportunity to participate in STEM outreach with K-12 students in the local area. I am serving as the Vice Recruitment Coordinator on the executive board this semester.
In addition, I have been a member of the RPI Crew Team since my sophomore year and participated in recruitment and retainment effort after Covid-19 as the membership director during Spring and Summer of 2022. I also was a Resident Assistant and an Orientation Advisor in the past, and I am a member of the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society.
