Riley spent her time at Georgia Tech gaining experience through internships and classes to help develop her civil engineering skills both in consulting and in international development. After graduating from Georgia Tech in December of 2018, she spent a year and a half working with Barge Design Solutions in Atlanta where she worked in stormwater modeling and hydrologic/hydraulic analyses.
Riley grew up in a church that valued loving God, loving others, and reaching the world. From a young age, she desired to use her time and skills to achieve those purposes. While at Tech, Riley became involved in The Navigators and learned the importance of discipleship and Bible study in the walk of the Christian faith. During this time, she also discovered more deeply how much Jesus cares for both the physical and spiritual needs of people and wondered how she might play a role in His mission. Through EMI, Riley has found a way to help serve these needs specifically through her background in civil engeering and her heart for making Christ known.
