Emily Shedlarski - Manufacturing Engineer, Mueller Company (UAB)

I will say wholeheartedly that the College Industry Conference (CIC) was a complete blessing for me. I met a friend, David Fletcher, who accepted Lodge’s offer at the CIC in 2013. I had just moved to Chattanooga for work and had been alone until I ran into David at the Metalcasting Congress in April, which is when I realized I had a friend in town! He’s been incredible—pulled me into his friend group, got me active with the TN AFS chapter, and we both utilize each other for help at work. I most likely still wouldn’t have friends here if it weren’t for the CIC.


Outside of work I enjoy reading, working out, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, paddleboarding, baking, cooking, playing video games, exploring, and spending time with my family.



We look forward to keeping in contact with you for many years to come. We are interested in your continued involvement in the metalcasting industry and want to assist you in any way that we can so that you are successful. We would also like to highlight alumni on this page as well as our Facebook page. If you are willing to update your work information and interests, please click here to fill out a short form.
