Tell us about your journey to becoming an engineer.

My career began as a sales representative for a renowned Japanese electronics manufacturer. Over seven years, I found myself selling our "finished" products while constantly encountering the disconnect between our manufacturing ideals and customer needs. These experiences prompted me to transition into various engineering roles. Consequently, I decided to leave my job and enroll in school to learn Mechanical Engineering and CAD skills.

What or who inspired you to become an engineer? 

While no one person, in particular, inspired me to become an engineer, I received encouragement from many individuals in my life, including my family, friends, and teachers. Their support motivated me to embrace challenges and remain dedicated.

What do you do at Munters?

At Munters, I am responsible for designing dehumidifying system units tailored to each customer and project, starting from scratch. My tasks involve utilizing CAD software to create assembly diagrams, part designs, and electrical drawings.

Compared to other companies, our work at Munters demands a broader range of knowledge, including air conditioning, mechanical design, and electrical design. Additionally, we must be flexible in adapting to diverse customer requirements. I find the work environment at Munters stimulating and enjoy the challenges it presents.

What's the best part of being an engineer?

Every project I undertake presents its own set of difficulties, and at times, I encounter machine malfunctions that need troubleshooting. However, these challenges never bore me. Additionally, we are constantly tasked with improving our products—finding ways to reduce costs, update components, and more. Such endeavors are also inherently rewarding.

What are your proudest moments and challenges as an engineer?

My proudest moments arise when I complete demanding and complex projects.

What advice would you give to young women who might be considering studying engineering or working as engineers? 

In my opinion, having a genuine interest in engineering is the most crucial factor. If you possess that interest, you are ready to pursue a career in engineering.

What strategies or initiatives do you think companies like Munters should implement to promote gender diversity and create a supportive and safe environment for women to thrive in engineering roles and leadership positions?

To better support females, LGBTQ, and employees with disabilities, I believe it is essential that we look beyond our differences and acknowledge each other as individuals. This can be achieved by promoting frequent communication across gender and personalities. Additionally, I suggest establishing Teams communities catering to different identities such as women, LGBTQ individuals, and more. These communities would provide valuable support by facilitating the sharing of thoughts, addressing challenges, and accumulating experiences and knowledge for future reference.

When it comes to promoting female leaders, it is vital for HR and supervisors to engage in open communication with female candidates. This involves expressing a genuine desire for their advancement and understanding their aspirations. Equally important is the alignment between HR and supervisors regarding the promotion, which should be established beforehand.

What do you do in your spare time?

I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing video games.
