Area of Expertise
My experience and skills are mostly around developing a vision of the future and an understanding of how it might impact business, forging partnerships, commercial arrangements, and open innovation mechanisms to design, build, and deploy new products at scale.

Why you're passionate about getting more girls interested in STEM
My engineering class at Binghamton University started with 150 students, only two of which were female. We noticeably lacked the perspective and insights that a more diverse group would have offered. I love MakerGirl's mission, their unique ways of achieving the ambitious goals we've set, and helping in any way I can to democratize STEM to a broader audience.
