Background: I graduated with an M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering, with emphasis in Sustainable Design and Construction, Energy Analysis, in June 2014. My Stanford program is described here. I graduated from the University of Wyoming in December 2012 with my Bachelors of Science in Architectural Engineering and minors in Violin Performance and the Honors Program. I received my LEED Green Associate in 2010 and my Engineer in Training in 2012.
