Browning says she’s excited to join the college and work with mechanical engineering students.

“I loved my academic advisor when I was a student at USU, and she was my inspiration for going into this profession,” she said. “I am very excited to work with students in the department. So far, the best part of being an advisor is getting to know students and discussing their goals and dreams with them.”
