Current place of employment:

Project Engineer – Global Partnerships

Placement on Fellowship:


The Alfa Fellowship Program had such a positive impact on my life, both personally and professionally. My year in Russia helped me to see my life goals more clearly than ever before and it really gave me the perspective and experience to understand what I need to do to achieve those goals. 

Not only did this experience help me to gain a deeper international perspective of the global space, engineering, and technologies industries, but my time living and working in Russia as a representative of my native country also taught me a great deal about communication, diplomacy, and professionalism.  I carry these characteristics with me in all aspects of my life. 

I am extremely proud and honored to have been an Alfa Fellow. I will always speak highly of the program and strongly encourage others to apply.
