“A few years ago, I was the first student worker here and ended up changing my major as a result of my exposure to this team and the work that we do for UD. I continue to learn from the smartest people I know and am guided by a great manager. My days are full of variety where I get to see all aspects of our operation and assist wherever I can. I’ve learned that my time is valuable and I want to be in an environment that is team oriented, quality driven and consistently supports my professional growth.”
