Welcome to my About Me page!

My name is Nicole Barwick and I am a freshman in Chemical Engineering here at NC State. I chose Chemical Engineering as my major as it combines my two favorite fields, chemistry and the wonderful world of engineering. With this major I hope to obtain a career as an analytical chemist and analyze chemical forensics in some branch of law enforcement.


Currently however, I hold three part-time jobs as the assistant managing lifeguard at one of the city pools in my hometown of Kinston, North Carolina as well as being a youth soccer referee and tennis instructor. While these have been great jobs for me the past few years and have taught me numerable lessons and experiences I would not have gained anywhere else, I have realized any form of healthcare or recreational career is not for me. I would not trade those years as a lifeguard at the city pools for anything, but I am greatly looking forward to utilizing an engineering degree to obtain my dream job.
