How did you start your career in this industry?
I luckily stumbled into this industry via an internship at National Instruments (NI)-a software Engineering Company based in Austin, TX. I landed in their Events Department helping the team with tradeshows, seminars, and their Annual Conference-NIWeek. I instantly fell in love and was energized by the work I was doing and could not wait to start my professional career when I graduated! NI was gracious enough to extend a full time offer to me post-graduation and the rest is history!
