AWIS Kirsten R. Lorentzen Award
I will start Fall of 2020 as a Senior majoring in Physics. I came into Coe College in 2019 as a transfer student after receiving my AS from Cottey College. At Coe, I am grateful to be Publicity Chair for WinSTEM, an athlete on the Cross Country and Track and Field Team, Resident Whiteboard Artist of the Physics Lounge, and member of our SPS chapter--helping set up our ice cream socials and running a booth for our Playground of Science outreach. I also had the great opportunity to attend Physcon 2019 which really made me realize how great it is to be a physics major. I've previously held research positions at The University of Missouri (Chem. Engineering), Cottey College (Biology), Brown University (Chemistry), and now Coe College for Physics. I hope to continue to do research in graduate school. I really value outreach in Science so wherever my career path leads me, industry, academia, working for an organization, etc., I want to give back and be sure that the next group of students have the mathematical and technical skills, and the support they need, to do well in Physics.
