Mary is a third year Mechanical Engineering student at Northeastern University. Since her freshman year, she has developed skills necessary within the startup field by cofounding the aerospace club, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics – Northeastern chapter. She has found many parallels between founding a club and founding a company and during her sophomore year, she landed an internship with Apple. When working with a lot of vendors, she had to make the decision of which vendor to partner with, and she experienced first hand the importance of the team that is behind the product. She plans to combine her entrepreneurial spirit with her engineering background to further pursue an MBA in hopes to define herself within the private space tourism field.
