    After being a student athlete for 15 years I understand the teamwork, communication, work ethic, and time management necessary to be successful in the work place. During the course of my engineering education I balanced being a full time student while also competing as a collegiate athlete. I have proficient skills in Microsoft Office, Smart Plant Foundation, SharePoint, Navisworks ANSYS, MATLAB, AutoCAD, and Solidworks 3D. As a very fast visual learner I am always looking to enhance these skills and also embrace the task of learning new trades.
