My current career goals are simple: gain experience in field work, and find a mentor that can guide me to make good decisions in my field. As an active, kinetic learner, I find I work best when I am moving around and gathering qualitative data as well as quantitive data to back up my work and I want to find a job that allows me to put that to good use. Due to my inexperience, however, my sense of what may or may not be a good career move is not fully developed, and I am willing to acceptance guidance and constructive criticism from a more senior engineer in my field.

Junior Instructor, DiscoverE Science Camps (June-August 2012)
As a Junior Instructor, I assisted the more senior instructors with camps and science workshops and researched demonstrations for science shows.
