“I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ohio State, focusing on Circuits. After graduating, I started working full time at United Launch Alliance in Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. I work as a Systems Test Engineer with the ground electrical and software team for both Atlas V and Delta IV rocket programs. I’m also in training to be a console operator for launches on both rockets. My first mission on console was the NASA/ESA Solar Orbitor Probe launch on an Atlas V rocket in February.
The Shaffstall Scholarship was very helpful in getting my dream job working in the rocket industry. With a scholarship that took my mind off paying for school, I was able to focus on my classes and extracurricular activities. I co-founded a STEM Outreach volunteer organization and was vice president of IEEE while I was at Ohio State, and this heavy involvement outside of classes wouldn’t have been possible if I was also working. Since I was only focused on school, my resume was boosted by increased GPA and extracurriculars that led me to get a job where I’m helping explore space and improve national security. I’m very thankful for the Shaffstall Scholarship, and those that helped contribute to it.”
