Student Intern

May 2021 - July 2021 Livermore, CA
“I enjoyed getting to meet and work with a diverse group of professionals with varied specializations. I was supported every step of the way by my research mentor and manager, and had access to many resources as an intern. The internship ended with a research symposium, which allowed me to present the work that I had performed. ”

Summer Undergraduate R&D S&E Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Kirtland Air Force Base, NM
“The relocation benefits, the 9/80 schedule, I went on a business trip with the web development team, everyone I worked with was patient, passionate and excited to teach me. I felt like the work I was doing actually benefitted the organization and had real-world value for the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Everyone in the facility was nurturing and friendly and answered any and every questions I had. They were welcoming and I learned very quickly that it was a family. I made friends that I will keep close for a very long time, and memories that I won't soon forget. My facility (the Z Pulsed Power Facility) was different, I think. Summer 2017, I also worked for Sandia but not at Z, and I had projects that were handed to me and that was it. At Z, I had the chance to see where the facility can improve and take it upon myself to fix it. For some, that may be stressful, but I like that level of autonomy. For a general intern at Sandia, there was lots to do. Lots of projects, but tons of fun intern events as well. Barbecues, job fairs, resume reviews galore. It was awesome! ”
