Angela Bueno joins us from her home in Charlotte, NC. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering from Massachusetts Maritime Academy in 2007. While at MMA, she assisted in creating the Academy’s Multi-Cultural Club, bringing the multi-national student body together to learn about each other. Upon graduating, Angela worked short periods in the salvage, shipyard, and cruise industries before ultimately dedicating her career to dredging domestically for the Army Corps of Engineers.
