“I love what I do and where I work, so this award is definitely validation that I’m on the right track in my career. And just receiving an award that has such a long history and to be included in a group of remarkable women is just an honor. It’s not only recognition for myself but also other females who choose to pursue engineering despite the challenges that it can present.”
