Jennifer Jewers, P.E., is a refrigeration engineer at Henderson Engineers, Inc. (HEI). She is responsible for quality control for HEI-designed refrigeration systems for new Walmart stores. She ensures that the refrigeration systems are designed for optimal performance, reducing the amount of refrigerant in the systems, and that the systems are designed to maximize energy efficiency. Prior to earning her Professional Engineer license, Jewers was responsible for maintaining all refrigeration updates and changes for Walmart and other refrigeration design initiatives, as well as developing the refrigeration design for new prototypes. As an early career engineer-in-training for Carter & Burgess, Inc. in Fort Worth, TX, she worked on ammonia refrigeration systems for food processing centers and refrigerated distribution centers. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sandra Kolvick, P.E.
Sandra Kolvick Flanagan, P.E., is a technical competitive assessment engineer in GE Energy’s Advanced Technology Operations. Kolvick applies her experience developing power plant mass/heat balances along with piping and instrumentation diagrams for plant systems including water clarification and demineralization, chemical injection, and steam sampling. At the 2010 International Water Conference, she presented a technical paper entitled “Carbon Capture Technology Ramifications on Power Plant Water Treatment,” which evaluated the impact of full-scale deployment of a carbon capture and sequestration system on the water treatment facility in a coal power plant.
In March 2011, Kolvick sponsored the ASME Mechanical Engineering Landmark nomination for the North Carolina Transportation Museum Turntable and Roundhouse. She is also the Charlotte Section representative for the Society of Women Engineers, leading local outreach programs with the Girl Scouts, YWCA, and local grade schools.
