Megan Kennedy-Pierce can’t remember ever wanting to be anything besides an engineer, and she’s inspiring other young people to follow in her path. Megan is a quality project engineer in our generators division. She loves the variety of work her job provides and problem solving, which is good considering the backup-power products she works on are quite complex.
The perfect outlet for her engineering enthusiasm, Megan has become a mentor for future engineers. She volunteers for a Sheboygan-area robotics club, for which her team won Rookie All-Star Award in the 2016 competition, and leads job-shadow tours—from operations to product development areas—to show the diversity of engineering careers at Kohler.
“The sooner students gain exposure to real-life working environments, the sooner they can gain the insight and confidence to make informed decisions regarding their career path after high school,” she says.
