Student Spotlight: Sarah Johnson

April 12, 2022

Sarah Johnson is the current WISER graduate assistant.  She first got involved with PEER&WISE through one of our Girl Scout Day events during her high school career.  She began her time at Clemson as a WISE mentee and then continued as a WISE mentor for the rest of her sophomore, junior, and senior year.  Sarah will be graduating in May with her Master’s of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering and then she is off to Jacksonville, Florida to begin a new career.   She will be working as an associate IPS engineer in the Orthognathic division of KLS Martin.  While there, she will be creating patient-specific surgical solutions (plate and screw systems) and walking surgeons through each step of the jaw surgery for optimum patient outcomes.  Sarah would like to let everyone know that bioengineering is not easy, but thanks to the help from PEER&WISE, it was possible.  She wants to remind everyone that asking for help is definitely okay and always worth it!
