Associate Director, Women in Engineering at University of Illinois
Area of Expertise
MakerGirl has a strong vision for inspiring girls to be active in STEM. I hope to use my own technical knowledge as a professional engineer, administrator, and educator to contribute to MakerGirl’s success in achieving this vision.
Why you're passionate about getting more girls interested in STEM
I am a proponent of empowering all girls to achieve great things. Many girls don’t know about the unbelievable opportunities that exist for them if they have an desire to pursue STEM fields. I want to help ensure they all are exposed to these opportunities so they can set their sights on these goals.
Your advice for little kids (girls) to be successful
Always believe in yourself. Set your goals and then work to achieve them. If you can dream it, you can achieve it!
