Back in freshmen year, I decided to apply for Baldwin because I thought it would be an excellent chance to meet strong, independent women at Duke.. and I was not disappointed throughout my time in the program. Baldwin showed me the various types of people that attend Duke and how to be comfortable with myself as well as other people. I was lucky enough to meet one of my best friends through Baldwin, a friend that will be there for me the rest of my life. I loved the program and everyone I encountered as result of being part of it.
I graduated two years ago with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Civil Engineering degree with a Certificate in Architectural Engineering.
For a year I lived at home in Northern Virginia and with my older sister's family, working as a Project Engineer for American Infrastructure. I worked on a construction site at Fort Belvoir helping to build a new community hospital for the military. I then moved to the Estimating Department to help estimate job costs for bid proposals.
I switched companies last October to Parsons Corporation in DC. I have been involved as an engineer on WMATA projects as well as a CSX project. I moved into the city and live with a good friend from Duke.
