About me

Gender Female

Occupation Aerospace Engineer
Location Somerville, MA, United States
Introduction Welcome to my blog! I grew up in California and later attended Texas A&M University to earn a Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering. I also hold a Master's degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I previously worked at Kennedy Space Center for Boeing on the Space Shuttle Orbiter's Thermal Protection System. I transitioned to an engineering position with the MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA. I applied for the 2009 astronaut candidate program, but unfortunately did not get a call back. I applied again in early 2011 so fingers crossed! I currently am working on continuing my advanced education, involvement with space advocacy, and continuing to do all that I love in life!
Interests running, biking, skydiving, weight-lifting, judo, golfing, cooking, eating sushi, kayaking, traveling to visit old friends.
Favorite Music Anything I can sing along to!
