Tell us about your Berkeley IEOR experience. What were some of the best memories you had here?
“Studying” with my IEOR friends until random hours of the night on campus.
Why did you choose Berkeley IEOR?
It was honestly an accident. I applied to the major by chance and it ended up being the best mistake I’ve ever made. I didn’t even know what IEOR was until I got here, but being part of the Berkeley IEOR community truly shaped my college experience in a positive way.
What was your favorite IEOR class and why?
IEOR 166 because it was different from anything else I’d ever learned and I really enjoyed the content.
What are your post-graduation plans? How do you see your skills from IEOR being used in the future?
After graduation, I will be joining Accenture full-time as a consulting analyst. Since most IEOR classes require a group project, I can see how learning to apply the theory covered in classes to a real world problem prepares me to tackle most anything I may encounter during my career.
What advice do you have for younger IEOR students?
Learn from those around you and build a support network that will push you to pursue what’s important to you. Berkeley can be overwhelming at first, but making the effort to find my engineering support network helped guide me along the way and many cherished memories. Outside of my involvement with the department, I spent a lot of time in Society of Women Engineers and met some of my best friends who’ve supported me to find my own success and happiness.
