Ms. Woodard received her Bachelor of Science in Optical Engineering and her Master’s in Engineering Management from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. As an undergrad, she interned with Wolf for two summers and assisted the forensics team with the analysis and reconstruction of accidents, concentrating on cases involving lighting and visibility issues.
After graduating with her bachelors, she worked with Valeo Sylvania as a member of their P2 Optics development team gaining experience in optical systems design and testing for exterior automotive lighting applications. While at Valeo, she was responsible for the simulation, prototyping, testing, and optimization of the optical system design for the high beam on the Cadillac Escalade.
After receiving her master’s, she moved to Greenville, SC where she worked in the telecommunications, nuclear, and automotive manufacturing industries. She has a range of experience in the areas of project management, operations management, operator training & development, process optimization, quality management systems, logistics, design for manufacturing, design and process FMEAs, and technical communications.
She is recently back with Wolf as a member of the forensic team and again will be assisting with accident reconstruction and analysis. With her engineering background in optics, she will focus mainly on incidents involving questions about lighting and visibility conditions.
