Carly Nylander

engineeringMy name is Carly Nylander and I will be a 5th year Environmental Engineering student at Michigan State University. Along with Emily Banach, I will be the Project Co-Lead for this coming year. In addition to our implementation trip this summer, I am also a Water Practice intern in Dallas, Texas at an Engineering Consulting Firm called CP&Y. My passions include eating food, renewable energy, being in any body of water, speaking in monotone, the environment, and music. I hope to improve the world in these areas whether through formal education and my career or in my personal time!

After growing up in small town, I moved to Lansing and have been living on the east side of Michigan’s capital for a couple years.

When I’m not in school or working, I also like to spend my time traveling with my friends and family and have been fortunate enough to travel to many places in the past couple years! Here are my recent journeys, and I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I look forward to implementing this rainwater collection system and continuing to work with the Salvatorian Sisters and the surrounding community to engineer solutions to bring them water!
