Kathryn Nestlerode

I have always had a slight idea of what I wanted to do when I grew up. As a kid, conversations in the car were about vehicle aerodynamics and different engine functions, given I had an engineer father. By challenging myself with various math and science courses, it became clear to me that my passion was Aerospace Engineering. I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in designing airplanes, specifically for the Air Force. It interests me to hear about new technologies and how engineers are designing airplanes to be faster and better, and I knew I wanted to be apart of it. When applying to schools, I also knew I wanted to be apart of a diverse community where students are given the opportunity to thrive. It was a no-brainer when I was accepted at The Ohio State University that I wanted to spend the next few years in Columbus. At school, I plan to fill my time outside of class with research in aerodynamic flow control, continuing to play volleyball, and volunteering in my community.

I am so excited to become a Buckeye and I thank the Alumni Club of Seattle for helping me to further my education and fuel my passions at The Ohio State University! Thank you for everything!
