Liberal Arts Major(s): German
Other Major: Industrial Engineering
Hometown: Feasterville, Pennsylvania

What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience so far has been getting to know my extended German family. They have been very inclusive and made me feel right at home. It is a really special experience to spend some time with people that you are connected to through a shared family history and to see your roots firsthand.

Through these experiences I have been able to figure out what I enjoy working on and what direction I want to take my career.

How did this experience impact you academically?

My German has improved a great deal through constant daily practice; practice like that you cannot get in a classroom. Taking a break from my studies to experience of a full year of work and life in the real world has been a breath of fresh air. I feel refocused and enthusiastic about returning to class in the fall.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

Over the past 9 months at wolfcraft I have been exposed to a lot different aspects of what it takes to run a business. Through these experiences I have been able to figure out what I enjoy working on and what direction I want to take my career. Manufacturing really interests me, and I feel at home in an industrial environment.
