2021-2022 Student Ambassador


Hometown: Newport News, VA

About Me: When receiving my acceptance into Virginia Tech, I decided on the path of Civil Engineering as my major. In my freshman year, I attended a major information session for CEM which sparked a new passion and drive in me. I saw the CEM Ambassadors and how much they loved the major; that is when it all changed and I was convinced that CEM was the place for me. I choose CEM because of my love for construction and how every project is unique. My personal experience inspired me to become an ambassador, to be able to show all the prospective students what this major has to offer, the opportunities that exist and spark the passion, the same way the previous ambassadors inspired me.

During my time at Virginia Tech, I have been able to get involved with and play an active role in the Theme Park Engineering and Design Club and Alpha Omega Epsilon sorority. When I’m not at school you will most likely find me at a theme park, especially Disney World, at a coffee shop, or hanging with friends.
