Professional Training & Experience

  • B.S. Chemical Engineering, Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO) - 2018
  • EMI Cambodia Intern - Aug 2018 to Dec 2018
  • EMI USA Intern - Jan 2019 to May 2019

When Mariah graduated from Mines in 2018, she found EMI by performing a Google search of “engineering missions”. Upon applying, she felt God calling her to Cambodia, which is where she interned in the fall of 2018. When her internship came to an end, she knew that she was not done with EMI yet, so she continued for another term as an intern in the Colorado Springs office. As of May 2019, Mariah decided to join EMI’s development team. She hopes to use her skills to promote the growth and long-term sustainability of the amazing work that EMI does.

Ministry Experience

Mariah attended the Navigator’s summer training program in Granby, CO in 2016 and returned as a team leader in 2017. These programs involved extensive discipleship and evangelism training, which ultimately motivated her to use her engineering degree for ministry. EMI’s heavy focus on discipleship is one of the main things that drew Mariah to EMI.
