Collette Gillaspie

Aerospace Engineering, sophomore
Collette is a freshman aerospace engineering major from Omaha, Nebraska. The second she heard about the Notre Dame Rocketry Team, she knew she needed to join. She has dreamt of working for NASA since she was little, and she thought the ND Rocketry Team would be the perfect opportunity to kickstart her career at Notre Dame. In high school, Collette was an active member of the robotics club and published a research paper on the effects of federal cutbacks on the United States space program. Over the summer, she interned at the space museum in her area.
