I'm the Vice President/Human Resources at JPD Controls, Inc. I've been involved with Team 135 since 1998. We moved into the Penn district then (for the sake of our son Andrew, who was 3 at the time) and my husband, Bill, found about about Penn Robotics. He went to a meeting to check it out and see what it was all about, he got really excited, got me me interested, and the rest is history! I was the Vice President and then President of the PRPO during our son's time on the team. I've also helped with several other tasks over the years. I enjoy watching the students evolve and grow so much over time and seeing them use their FIRST experience in college and beyond to go far into some really awesome careers! That is so rewarding, gives me so much pride to be in this program! There are just soooooo many memories!!! To be honest, though, as a mom, it was watching my son help create the bots and seeing him as a driver both of his years on the team.
