30: Chemical Engineering with Environmental Emphasis – Kerrie Greenfelder
Kerrie Greenfelder earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering with an Environmental Emphasis from the University of Kansas and currently is a Department Manger at Burns & McDonnell.
The foundation in Chemical Engineering allows her to work on the chemistry and biological side of water. She works a lot with cities and municipalities to help them solve water waste challenges and you guessed it, she is fired up about water and how she is able to apply new technologies for clean water generation and reclamation.
In high school she did not have to study much, but in college it was a different story, after getting behind a bit she realized she needed to read the text books and STUDY, STUDY, STUDY. Kerrie also recommends taking the technical writing course(s) as you will need the ability to convey technical information clearly.
As a hiring manager she of course will look at your grades but also at your involvement out side of school, community involvement and leadership in organization.
Her favorite book is The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
