  • Fleet wide long-term asset management studies for Exelon

  • Design of a custom radiation monitoring system for a DoE client, including custom design of a PCB that integrated into a SCADA system

Prior to joining the engineering realm, Jared's leadership skills were shaped from nine years of service in the US Army and Iowa Army National Guard, including a tour of duty in Iraq, prior to earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University.

KCL looks forward to introducing Jared's breadth of knowledge to facility managers to assist in proactively and safely maintaining and optimizing their operations.
