My name is Mary Wooldridge and I was a student at Humboldt State University for two years, enrolled in the Engineering program, but now I am located in Bozeman, MT and attending Montana State University for the Chemical Engineering program. I am also finishing up a minor in non-teaching mathematics. In my time when I'm not dealing with math and science, I like to run, swim, and play tennis. I grew up in Salem, Oregon where I went to Sprague High School.
