Conference Organizer - Heather Straley

Junior – Electrical Engineering

Hi people! I like long walks on the beach. On a more serious note, I am excited to be Conference Organizer this year! I have really enjoyed getting involved with IEEE in the past and now being an officer I get to enjoy it from a whole new perspective. I appreciate the networking IEEE has and how I get to see my studies from a broader scope. I personally like to get active, listen to music, and make other people laugh. I hope to incorporate some of these positive activities in our IEEE events. I think being in a healthy, fun, and happy environment is important for well-being and for keeping IEEE awesome. Feel free to reach out to me anytime. I would love to hear from you!
