I have a B.S. in civil engineering and a M.S. in structural engineering from Arizona State University. After graduating, I became a lecturer at ASU in civil engineering. During my time teaching I really became interested in engineering education and knew I wanted to pursue a graduate degree in that field. After moving to Utah and finding the program at Utah State University, I have really enjoyed diving in to the education world. I am most interested in the sophomore level courses that engineering students typically take and how changes in those courses can impact student learning and retention.
