I teach math and physical sciences at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Westminster, CO. I have been coaching FTC for 7 years as an after school club open to the school, home-schoolers and any local schools that do not have an FTC program. Last year as a school we decided to create a robotics’ elective that meets 5 days a week. This class is designed to expose students to the business side of robotics (marketing, designing team logo, fundraising, community outreach), software creation and the engineering process using the usfirst.org robotics program.
This year I decided to branch out and create a team where I actually live in Brighton.
I have an MSME from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA. I worked at Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, IA as a student intern, then went to work for FMC as a mechanical engineer, where I learned how to do finite element analysis. After moving to Colorado I started to write software for a small CAD company.
I have always loved to fix mechanical things. One of my favorite stores to shop at is a hardware store. I have always been intrigued with gadgets and robots. In addition, I enjoy reading, knitting, jewelry making and walking my dogs.
