I'm a junior at Florida Tech studying Ocean Engineering with a minor in Sustainability! I'm originally from Hollywood, Florida and fell in love with the maritime industry in high school through a competition called the Plywood Regatta hosted by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida. On campus, I'm working as an undergraduate research assistant at the Center for Corrosion and Biofouling Control where I help graduate Ocean Engineering and Oceanography students with different projects! This past summer I interned at Carnival Cruise Line in Doral, Florida where I assisted project managers and engineers with energy efficiency projects on Carnival's 26 cruise ships. During my spare time, I love going to the beach, doing yoga and hanging out with my friends! SNAME has given me so much over the past several years from networking opportunities to a scholarship. Aside from President, I'm also currently the communications chair of the SNAME Student Steering Committee! I'm so excited for my future as a SNAME member and to give back to a great organization!
