Personal Summary

Hi, my name is Haley Herberg. I am currently a junior at the University of Washington pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. I have a passion for solving engineering problems and helping to protect the environment.

 In my coursework so far, I have utilized Microsoft Excel, Matlab, and WolfPack to solve engineering problems in a variety of contexts. I have experience with ArcGIS and AutoCAD form my geosurveying class. I have not yet had an internship, and I look forward to my first internship so I can learn from the engineers I will be assisting. In addition to my studies, I devote a large amount of my time to collegiate athletics. I run track and cross country for the Huskies, specializing in distance events. In both the academic world and the athletic world at University of Washington I am surrounded by people who push me to become better. Being a student-athlete, I have learned time management and prioritization. Additionally, the cooperation with my team and coaches toward a common goal prepares me for group projects in the engineering field. I am also conversational in Spanish and earned my Seal of Biliteracy upon graduating high school. 

I would describe myself as determined, optimistic, and hard-working. My goal as an engineer is to work on projects that have a larger positive impact on my community than I would be able to have on my own. It would be very exciting to apply what I have learned in the classroom to a real-world application while serving the public. I am currently living in Seattle, Washington to train with my team while taking online classes, but this summer I will have the option to either live here or in Mission Viejo, California with my family.
