When I first started at Entegris, my role was:
When I started with Entegris in 2013 as a junior electrical engineer, I spent time supporting Integrated Flow Controllers (IFCs) and Flow Meters in Fridley, Minnesota. After the Fridley location merged with the Chaska location and Jetalon was acquired by Entegris, my role transformed into Research and Development on the InVue lines of products. In my time with Entegris, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best electrical, software and mechanical engineers I’ve ever met!
When I am not working, I like to:
I like to ride my bike. Annually, I participate in a 300-mile ride across the state of Minnesota over 4 days in order to raise funds for a cause that’s bigger than any one individual. Outside of biking, I enjoy softball, golf, home improvement projects, traveling, hiking, sightseeing and spending time with family & friends.
