Macy has served in UIF since the fall of 2016. Macy’s UIF journey began in Kansas City, MO at William Jewell College where she studied Physics and Mathematics. Now, Macy is a Ph.D. student at the University of Arkansas studying Industrial Engineering. Although she has moved away from her undergrad institution, she still engages in the UIF community as a collaborator and mentor. One of the best parts of being a Fellow is the that engagement in the community never ends “once a Fellow always a Fellow.” Some of the areas Macy is most passionate about are: inter-deparmental collaborations, celebrating students, and creating communities that are a catalyst for innovation.

Macy would love to connect with you over any of the projects she has worked on, goals of hers, or just a nice cup of coffee: macy.tush@gmail.com
