AWIS Kirsten R. Lorentzen Award
I am a senior student at Coe College pursuing a degree in physics, I am also involved in the music program at Coe. I am the current President of Coe Colleges Physics club, Vice President of the WinSTEM club, and Secretary of the Mu Phi chapter. This summer I will be a WAVE Fellow at Caltech and I plan to continue my education by going to graduate school and earning my PhD.
I enjoy being an active member of my SPS chapter as well as creating events that help undergraduates at Coe realize career options in both industry and research. As president of the physics club I have invited SPS speakers to talk to our undergraduate students about possible career paths. My favorite memory is attending PhysCon and presenting my undergraduate research which allowed me to meet other amazing physics majors. Steve Feller was not only the advisor to my SPS chapter, but an integral part of my undergraduate experience. Steve Feller, also known as Doc, pushed me to do more as a student by involving me in research and the physics club.
