I grew up on a farm in rural Kentucky surrounded by opportunities to be creative and explore. Whether it was catching crawdads in the creek, training horses, or fixing fences, there was always something to be done. My family encouraged me to push my limits and be involved in things that I was passionate about. I hit the books and was enamored with anything that had to do with creative problem solving, particularly mathematics.
I carried my desire to learn and try different things through my college career at Vanderbilt University where I obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering and participated in a wide range of extracurricular activities. Halfway through college I realized that I was not satisfied with the breadth of knowledge I was obtaining, so I picked up minors in Studio Art and Engineering Management. That is when I discovered my love for design. The intricacy of needing to execute a task with certain parameters balanced with the ability to affect somebody on an emotional level had me hooked.
When I found Meyers+ Engineers, I knew this group of people had the passion and aim for excellence that I could be a part of. So, I packed up my car and drove across the country to join this dynamic group of engineers in pursuing innovative and purposeful building design.

I spent three of my spring breaks in college participating in Alternative Spring Break, a student run community service organization that promotes critical thinking, social action, and continued community involvement by sending students across the country to learn and volunteer in various communities.
