Major: Biomedical Engineering
Q: How did you decide on Baylor?
A: I heard of Baylor all my life but only visited for the first time during my senior year in high school. I fell in love with the campus, and every person I met was so supportive and encouraging. I knew I wanted to be a part of that community and to grow my faith alongside these people.
Q: Talk some about which student organizations/extracurricular activities are you involved in at Baylor and ECS. What have any of those experiences been like?
A: I am currently vice president of Engineers with a Mission. That experience has been amazing so far. The people that I serve with are so dedicated to the community.
I am on Teal Council, which is dedicated to helping Teal Residential College students build community. Through that, I have made great friends and been able to aid others into forming lasting relationships.
I’m also outreach director for Society of Women in Engineering (SWE). I arrange volunteer activities for our executive team and members.
I’m an ECS Scholars mentor and excited to get started with this program soon.
Lastly, I am a part of the Kappa Chi Alpha (KXA) sorority, which is a Christian sorority on campus that has been an amazing way to develop community in faith and make new friends.
Q: What has been your favorite ECS class and why?
A: Digital Logic Design (ELC 2337) with Dr. Keith Schubert has been my favorite course so far. It was a very hands-on experience and challenged all of us to go beyond what we believed we could do. We learned so much. Dr. Schubert is an amazing professor and was always supportive and understanding. The course itself taught us the steps of the design process, which we got to apply to real circuits in the concurrent lab.
Q: Thus far, which professor or staff member has meant the most to you and why?
A: Dr. Elon Terrell has been my most impactful professor. I have taken him for statics and for thermodynamics, both of which I loved. I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching. He is energetic and passionate about the subjects, and he made the material fun! Dr. Terrell is always open and eager to give extra help when a student needed extra clarification.
Q: What are your plans after graduation and career goals?
A: I plan to go to graduate school to for biomedical engineering and do research. My career goals include working to develop prosthetic organs. I have always been passionate in that area, and I specifically want to develop a prosthetic pancreas for diabetics.
