Member of the Month - March 2019
Meet March's ASNE Member of the Month - Erica Feldscher! Read on to learn a bit more about Erica in her interview with Membership Manager Michelle.
Michelle: What got you into Naval Engineering? (What specific event or moment).
Erica: I went to Drexel for the five year program, which includes three co-ops, and applied to NAVSEA for my first co-op. It turned out to be a pretty interesting job, and when I tried a different industry for my second co-op, it wasn't nearly as good or interesting of a job. So I went back into naval engineering and never looked back!
Michelle: What is a fun fact most people don't know about you?
Erica: I'm moving to Canada next month!
Michelle: What is one engineer/scientist/ or mathematician dead or alive would you like to meet?
Erica: I would like to have met Sally Ride! I desperately wanted to be an astronaut as a kid, and I even applied last time the position was open at NASA. She accomplished so much, and was a fascinating person.
Michelle: If you could engineer your perfect concession stand/food truck, what would it be?
Erica: A perfect food truck would be a stirfry food truck! Mix and match proteins, veggies, rice/noodles, and sauces. My best friend in college and I wanted to quit school to open up this dream truck just about every finals week.
Michelle: Why are you a member of ASNE?
Erica: I am a member of ASNE for the professional exposure and networking.
Michelle: What does "Naval Engineering" mean to you?
Erica: Naval Engineering means supporting the Navy to me. Specifically, supporting the sailors. With shock and survivability being my area of expertise, I want to ensure the safety of sailors using equipment that I've tested.
