Q. What interested you most about the opportunity to intern at KV REMC?

A. I was sparked by the locality and sense of community at REMC. I have grown up in Wanatah and I felt that it would be great to use my skills in a way to better my surroundings. Aside from this, I have an interest in power systems and hope to learn as much as possible before I graduate with my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from PNW in May 2024.

Q. If you could do anything you love, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A. I would love to take my career to an engineering manager position for the design process of computer hardware. Aside from work though, I would love to travel the world and explore trails, landmarks and historic monuments.

Q. What is one thing you hope to accomplish as part of the experience?

A. I aim to learn the engineering project flow for power distribution to our members. I also enjoy learning and am excited to learn as much as I can about the processes we use to serve our members.
