Mechanical Engineering

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Starting this summer I will be working as a Systems Engineer for a consulting company for the US Navy. My goal is to work a few years in the more technical areas of engineering, then transition to a more senior management role. My current plan is to stay involved in military work, but I am open to also work in industry.

What are the top 3 reasons you enjoy working at RecSports?

  1. I have made some great friends with my fellow employees at RecSports over the years, and they make it easy to look forward to each of my shifts.
  2. It's always a great break from worrying about the stress of school work or exams.
  3. Many students look to RecSports to provide a break from studying to stay active and do something fun, and I love providing other students with that opportunity.

What’s one thing you would like everyone at RecSports to know about you?

I am very thankful to all of the pro staff and all the other student employees for a great four years. I have greatly enjoyed working at both the Climbing Wall and the Smith Center, and the people that I work with every day have made it so enjoyable.
