Andrea M. Urueta, President
Howdy! My name is Andrea Urueta and I am SHPE Phoenix’s new Secretary. I currently work as an electrical engineer for Honeywell Aerospace, but am originally from a little town called Del Rio, Texas. I received my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University, where I fell in love with SHPE! I am passionate about SHPE because it encourages its members to be positive, innovative and confident. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, playing tennis, and socializing. I look forward to meeting you and hope SHPE Phoenix can be your second familia too!
