Always having a love for architecture and the environment, I knew I wanted to combine both passions in my career.

Home State: Kentucky, USA

Chalmers Program: M.Sc. Applied Acoustics

My time at Chalmers was a life-changing experience. I had never left the U.S. before coming to Sweden to study in 2018. Many things have changed in the world since that time. I am forever grateful to the U.S. Friends of Chalmers organization and the scholarship I received that allowed me to live out my dream. I am especially thankful to my scholarship donor, Bo Hedfors. Without the generosity of the alumni in this organization, I would never have had such a fantastic experience. I look forward to many more wonderful experiences with wonderful people.
