Utah State University, 2019
Mechanical Engineering

Why I chose ESTEEM:

As an aspiring surgeon with an engineering background, I really want to help innovate the healthcare industry. ESTEEM is the perfect program to teach me how to validate and de-risk my ideas and then bring them to market.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it:

My capstone project with Liberty Source is a market analysis and go-to-market strategy for business process outsourcing of robotic process automation. I'm excited to dive into the robotic process automation world because of its unlimited range of applications. I'm also excited to work with Liberty Source to provide employment to military spouses and veterans.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM I hope to apply to medical school and become a surgeon. If any of my ideas end up turning into viable businesses this year, then that may get put off another couple of years!

What I like to do when I'm not working:

When I'm not working, I like to participate in outdoor sports such as running, mountain biking, paragliding, scuba diving, hiking, backpacking, soccer, backcountry skiing, and boating.
