Macie is from Ottawa, Canada and studying Aerospace Engineering, majoring in Aerodynamics, Propulsion & Vehicle Performance at Carleton University. Macie is evaluating career paths that use technology and innovation to better people’s lives and will work with the Quality and Delivery Excellence teams.
An Atlanta, GA native, Regan is currently attending Gwinnett Technical College and will transfer to Georgia Tech, majoring in Computer Science. Regan is focused on a career in software development and will work with the Digital team.
We’re excited to have Macie, Alex and Regan on board this summer and by the opportunity to help inform their career choices.
After a decade in the industry, Nimisha is still fascinated by the challenge of improving aircraft interior designs.
Nimisha Kaul Grover
Aerospace and Aviation
What do you do in your current role?
As a Materials Engineer, I support a diverse range of projects. I am currently working on cabin maintenance engineering for airline interior modification programs. This includes upgrading and refurbishing anything on board the aircraft that contributes to the passenger experience, along with aircraft certification and aircraft warranty analysis. I also contribute to FAA technical groups and industry quality (AS9100 and SAE) initiatives.
Why did you choose this career path?
Both my parents are scientists, so I grew up around the subject. I assumed I would follow a similar path. Once into college, assigned projects, internships, and my experience at two esteemed institutes (IIT Kanpur and the National Physics Laboratory) fueled a specific passion for engineering solutions and materials engineering. Working with an aerospace manufacturer validated the decision to pursue a career in aviation and aircraft certification. After graduating with a degree in Materials Engineering from the University of Florida (Go Gators!), I started my career in aircraft certification and material testing.
After a decade in the industry, I am still fascinated when I walk onto an aircraft and start troubleshooting a design. Being a problem solver by nature, I enjoy the challenges of engineering design, design for manufacturability, and failure investigations.
How has your career been fulfilling, and why?
My career and the work that I do challenges me both intellectually and creatively. I always strive to achieve more than what is expected of me, as a woman and as an engineer. I am particularly thankful to some great leaders in the industry who have encouraged me along the way.
As a mother, wife, and daughter, one consistent objective for me is to maintain ‘work/life balance’ and grow equally to the best of my ability in all spheres of life. My family is my backbone and I am thankful for all their love and support.
What I appreciate the most about SeaTec is the culture and that each and every employee is valued. Even in the worst of COVID-19, the SeaTec leadership team left no stone unturned to absorb financial pressures and its effect on the team. Proud to be a part of this team!
Kat’s involvement with the Society of Women Engineers inspires and empowers her to fulfill her potential.
Aerospace & Defense
What do you do in your current role?
I am a Systems Engineer supporting the Onboard Network Systems (ONS) for a leading aircraft manufacturer. We’re introducing new technology that provides Electronic Flight Bag application data (en route maps, flight plan data, weather data, takeoff and landing calculations) on the pilot’s forward display. This technology will keep pilots more informed and support safer decision making en route.
I always knew I wanted to be an engineer, even before I fully understood what an engineer was! Math and science were two of my favorite subjects, and I always loved building things. Early on, I had teacher mentors that nurtured these passions and encouraged me to pursue my dreams. It was in high school that one of my mentors helped me direct that passion towards engineering.
My profession has taken me around the world and led me to work on many different systems, from satellites that orbit our earth to the hardware that ensures planes fly safely. Looking up and knowing I played a part in improving people’s lives and safety is very fulfilling.
Throughout my career, I have had amazing mentors. They have guided me through the rough times and celebrated my successes.
I became involved with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to mentor future engineers. I have mentored amazing young women. I discovered mentoring is truly rewarding, and connecting and working with new communities has been very motivating. I have made lasting friendships all over the country and become inspired by the stories of other women. This community empowers me to be the best that I can be and enables me to give that back so we can all realize our full potential.
When I was looking at joining the SeaTec family, a former coworker told me what he loves most about working at SeaTec is the strong emphasis on servant leadership. Every day at SeaTec, I see this principle repeatedly demonstrated in how we interact with each other, our customers, and our communities. SeaTec has empowered me to continue to grow my career, pursue my passions, and give back to my community.
