I've always wanted to do something to help change the world for the better, and the ERE program seemed like a great place to begin. I worked as a buyer in the produce industry before returning to school after a 12 year absence. I have had children since the age of 14 which has pretty much kept me busy for the last 20 years now. It is a little odd coming back to school at my age, but I was ready to do more with my life, so here I am. On the bright side, I can actually help my kids with their homework now!

- Well, I've put furniture together, does that count?

Portfolio[edit | edit source]
In the Fall of 2012 my team and I, the Current Specialists, built an apparatus called Onderdonk's Box that teaches series versus parallel wiring. The document for this project can be found here.
A memo for the Problem Analysis section of the document is found here.
This spreadsheet shows the total hours spent outside of class time for Engr 215.
A sample AutoCAD drawing of mine shows Onderdonk's Box.
Here is a Gantt chart that our team created to keep on track during the design process.
