She discussed how her passions led her to discover her career, engineering as a career in general, educate the student’s on various types of engineering, talk about the day-to-day tasks as an engineer, and the steps to take to become a professional in this area. Students were also able to ask Marissa questions about her experiences, education, and career.
Marissa shared her experiences and challenges, such as being a female in a male-dominated industry, ways to handle failure and keep focused on your goals, and how mentors can be a valuable resource to have along the way. She also discusses the various organizations that have helped her throughout her journey, including the Society of Women Engineers.
