Brandon joined WHA in 2021 as a Chemical Engineering student at NMSU. He will work a part-time schedule at WHA while completing his degree. Prior to being at NMSU, Brandon was a student at the Arrowhead Park Medical Academy, and in fact, graduated as valedictorian of the 2020 class!
Brandon will primarily support our failure analysis and other technical teams, performing research and procedure documentation, FTIR analyses, testing support, and safety topic research. He may also help support facility expansion tasks, maintenance and operation of the inspection lab and equipment and other special projects as assigned.
On the personal side, Brandon enjoys reading and board games. However, unlike some of us, he says that one of his hobbies actually includes school! That seems pretty obvious when reviewing his credentials! Brandon graduated from Arrowhead High School with a 4.51 GPA and an Associate of Science from Dona Ana Community College. Brandon’s cumulative GPA at NMSU is 3.911. Good job, Brandon!
As with many in the WHA group, Brandon and his girlfriend, Valentina, also enjoy taking in the nice weather, beautiful trails, and natural beauty featured in Las Cruces. Some other interesting personal facts about Brandon are that his family raises rabbits and chickens, and he enjoys going to the Catholic traditional LATIN mass.
