Sarah felt like she had finally found a way to make a difference in her field by helping to protect people and the environment.  After joining aeSolutions and working in both the PSM and SISFEL groups, Sarah found her passion for alarm management.  She is thankful for a career that allows her to grow professionally and supports a strong family life enabling her to spend time making memories with the ones she cherishes the most.

Emily’s degree is in Electrical Engineering from Clemson University. Her first job was as an Instrumentation Engineer at an Oil Refinery in Louisiana, where she was exposed to various technologies &opportunities to problem solve.
