Ashley Nettleman (Ashley Kulczycki)

Currently searching for a job near the Lansing area as my husband is starting residency in Lansing.


Graduated from Michigan State University in May, 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in German. Graduated from the University of Notre Dame in January, 2015 with a Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

I enjoy helping out with FIRST Lego League ( tournaments especially as a referee. It continually amazes me the creative solutions that the middle school students come up with to accomplish that year's set of missions. I've managed to find time to volunteer at a tournament every year since 2005 when I was a senior in high school with my FIRST Robotics team.

My hobbies include using my sewing/embroidery machine to make personalized items and playing percussion or guitar at church services.
