Hello! I'm Rebecca House. I am currently in my senior year at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. December 2024 marks a significant milestone for me as I'll be graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and shortly after, in May 2025, I will complete my Master of Business Administration through UAB's accelerated bachelor/master (ABM) program. Maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout this journey has been a testament to my unwavering dedication and hard work.
Professionally, my journey has been enriched by my role as a Co-Op at Southern Company Services in Electrical Design since January of 2022. This role has seen me deeply involved in various projects, especially in protection and controls at transmission and distribution substations across the Southern Company fleet. Additionally, this spring, I've embraced the role of Vice President of the Students of Southern Company, which has been a fantastic opportunity to expand my leadership and collaborative skills.
My home is in Talladega, AL, where I live on Logan Martin Lake with my fiancé Landon and our dog, Wednesday. Outside the realms of academia and work, I find solace in reading and playing the piano. These hobbies are not just pastimes but a much-needed counterbalance to my busy schedule. Moreover, my involvement in the Tau Beta Phi Engineering Honor Society and Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society enhances my university experience, connecting me with a network of like-minded individuals.
The beliefs and aspirations that fuel my journey are deeply personal. I am motivated by the transformative power of education and the potential of women in STEM fields, recognizing the underrepresentation of women in this sector. This is not a limitation for me but a beacon, a sign of a void that I am determined to help fill. This period in my life has been incredibly rewarding and filled with learning and growth. As I look to the future, I'm excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the impact I hope to make in the world of engineering and beyond.
