2016 – 2017 Officers
Chair – Diana Marin
Hey, everyone! My name is Diana, and I’m currently a Junior in Mechanical Engineering. I’m the first female in my family to pursue a degree in the STEM field and second to become a Mechanical Engineer. Outside of school, I enjoy baking, exploring, doing crafts, drinking coffee, and sleeping (if I’m lucky). As Chair of ASME, I would like to offer members more opportunities to be involved and enthusiastic; to develop and to refine leadership, professional, and study skills to ensure a successful future; and for ASME to invest in their education. I hope to bridge the relationship between ASME and local schools and charities, our section’s alumni, and other university organizations. Feel free to contact me or say “hi” anytime!
Vice Chair – Karina Padilla
Treasurer – Andres Marroquin
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in F-SAE and I play and sing at my local church.
What I hope to do as Treasurer: Budget efficiently enough to be able to finance great events.
Notable Achievements: I have an associates degree.
Interests/Hobbies: I design cars. I love playing piano, guitar, and drums.
I’m a Senior Mechanical Engineering student and current Secretary for UH-ASME. I hope to improve communications between ASME members and officers and encourage more members to become involved with ASME national. I would also like to see UH-ASME travel to more conferences and professional development opportunities. I am also currently serving the International Gas Turbine Institute of ASME as the Student Advisory Committee Secretary and received the Outstanding Service Award for my work at the Turbo Expo 2016 conference. I am still involved in my first career as a professional sign language interpreter and teach in the local interpreter training program. When I’m not going to school, I like to read, dance, spend time outdoors fishing and shooting sporting clays, or just hang out with my friends and family.
