Bio: Hi! My name is Katherine Lee. I am from Clovis, CA, and am super excited to start my fourth year at Cal Poly studying civil engineering. There are many things I look forward to this year--continuing my internship with GHD Inc.; continuing to assist our transportation faculty/faculty advisor, Dr. Pande, with research; sharing my passion for transportation through ITE; and finishing up school! If I have free time, I would definitely spend it with family and friends or going out in the mountains and being with nature! If time allows, I would also like to get back to playing piano, it has been too long since I last played. Look out for Cal Poly ITE this year, it is going to be great!
Bio: Hi everyone! My name is Emily Lin and I'm this year's treasurer! In my free time I love doing DIY projects, whether that be painting on canvases/shoes/water bottles, embroidering clothes, folding origami, or doing resin pours. On days when I feel unmotivated, I'll either continue being lazy or turn into an organizing fanatic; it's one or the other, nothing in between. I also really enjoy playing tennis with my friends, busting out a tune or two on my flute and/or piano, and of course bothering my dog. I'm so excited for this upcoming year and what it has in store for our club!
