Hi everyone, welcome to my about me page!

My name is Tressa Glackin. I am a freshman and I am doing a dual major in Paper Science and Engineering and Chemical Engineering. I chose Paper Science because it was a more hands-on field than Chemical Engineering and because I live in Fernandina Beach, which has two pulp/paper mills. I decided to do the dual major because it is only a semester longer and it interests companies more than the single major.


When I was in high school, I worked as a hostess at a restaurant called Pepper's Mexican Grill and Cantina. While most of my job involved sitting customers and assigning tables, I would often help out servers, bartenders, bussers, managers, or other employees that needed help in order to ensure that the resaurant was running smoothly. Whenever we were understaffed, I would help the managers find new people to hire and help train all the new employees. I received two pay raises during my two years of work there. While I am not sure what I want to do after I graduate, I have received a co-op for next fall at a Rayonier Advanced Materials mill, which I hope will help me narrow my career path.
