“PNW helped me “Power Onward” by not only providing me a strong academic base upon which I can continue to build my engineering skills but also many opportunities to enrich my college experience and resume with extracurricular activities,” said Johnson.

Her career goal is to become a consultant for local engineering firms.

Johnson added, “Student organizations, like the Society of Women Engineers and PNW Formula SAE, offered me the opportunity to attend conferences and competitions where I was able to make connections with several employers.
