I finished High School, joined the Army, married my High School sweetheart from Rockford and started a family. I then deployed to and returned from Iraq, joined the Michigan National Guard, went back to school, and finally finished up!  I feel very, very lucky for all of the great friends and family I have in my life and I'm extremely excited for this new chapter in our lives!! Now, in my position with DornerWorks, I work with embedded electronics hardware and software design.

Supporting the Human Resources and Legal and Risk Managment departments at Cascade is a pleasure because I get to learn about the organization from both an internal and external perspective.  I always knew Cascade Engineering was an employer of choice as I was an intern for the organization a few years ago.  When the opportunity to join the company as an employee presented itself I knew I was making the right decision.  The cool thing about working for Cascade Engineering is that not only is the organization a leader in the plastics engineering industry but it  is also a pioneer in supporting its employees and letting them know they are respected and valued.

Mercedes Barragan

Cascade Engineering is a multi-business manufacturer and marketer supporting multiple brands. Cascade Engineering manufactures for and markets to a variety of industries such as automotive, commercial truck & bus, solid waste & recycling, furniture, material handling and renewable energy.
 
Here at Cascade I am part of a team that conducts research for various projects. In addition to this, I also do some web-editing, company reports, and internal communication.
 
I really enjoy the versatility of my job. I get to work on multiple assignments at any given time and I jump from research to creative so I am never bored! Before working at CE, I interned with the G.R. Hopper in addition to working full time as a server at Romano's Macaroni Grill. As soon as I graduated, I applied to a number of advertising agencies in Detroit and spent most of my free time researching different agencies in Washington DC, Denver and Texas. I was more or less determined to leave Michigan until I met Maxine Gray.
 
Shortly after graduation I waited on her at Romano's Macaroni Grill and she handed me a business card for the BL2END organization. Before I knew it, I was determined to be a part of the organization. There were openings for board members and I jumped at the opportunity! (Maxine can be very convincing!) That same month, I went to a BL2END event that featured Birgit Khols from The Right Place and I was hooked. It wasn't but a few weeks later that Maxine sent me an opening at Cascade Engineering and the rest is history!
 
It is truly a blessing to have so many opportunities fall into place and in my case, when I least expected it! It reassures that hard work pays off and that the Lord is taking care of me.
