“When I tell people that I am an engineer at JEA, they seem to be surprised that a girl became an engineer. This is unusual for me because the engineering department that I was in at school had a good ratio between male and female. Not exactly knowing what engineering is, people tend to overlook at the fact that the number of women in engineering is increasing every year. Engineering requires creativity, critical thinking, and collaborative teamwork beyond all the technical knowledge. These abilities are not limited to just men. I am proud to be an engineer for the work I do and what I can contribute.”
