B.S. from Lawrence Technological University in Electrical Engineering

M.S. from Oakland University in Applied Mathematics

Stock sees Kettering students as fun, bright, and mature. She feels that Kettering students are distinguished from other university students because of the closer relationship that exists between the students and faculty as a result of being a small university with smaller class sizes. She sees them as much more supportive of one another and connected with their professors on a deeper personal level. Stock's favorite part of teaching at Kettering is the satisfaction of knowing that she contributes to the molding and shaping of the lives of her students.  She was originally drawn to teaching at Kettering because it allows her to balance her professional life with her role as a parent.

Stock would tell prospective students to, "Review your pre-calculus/trigonometry before you start your first academic term.  Take advantage of all the opportunities at the school and at your co-op job.  Get involved in community service, intramurals, Greek life, clubs, student government, etc.  Kettering is more than just academics.  It's about shaping future leaders and CEOs."

Stock is married to Jack Stock, Director of External Affairs at Kettering.  Together they have six children.  She is also academic adviser to Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

Hidden talents and outside interests: Stock enjoys music, playing guitar, boating, downhill skiing, international travel, sports and activities with her family.

Dr. Laura Sullivan, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Arlington in Materials Science and Engineering, with expertise in biomaterials, polymer processing and service learning.

After 15 years of teaching at Kettering, Sullivan finds her students innovative, practical and successful at working in teams. While she enjoys teaching, she especially likes getting to know students outside the classroom through their involvement in organizations such as Engineers Without Borders.

Originally from Phoenix, Sullivan made the mistake of identifying the Red Wings as a soccer team during one of the first classes she taught at Kettering. She said she learned her lesson quickly and is now an avid Red Wings fan herself.

Sullivan feels lucky to be teaching the "Millennium Generation" because of their drive to make a positive difference in the world. "I can promise any student who chooses Kettering that you will have an opportunity to lead and to grow that will give you every tool to make the world a better place," she said.

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not helping change the world with Engineers Without Borders, Sullivan sings in the New Century Chorale and keeps up with her sons' water polo and swim meets
