As the daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and big sister of members of the United States Army, I have dedicated my career to serving those who serve us. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2018 with a BSE in Mechanical Engineering, a minor in Global Engineering, and a Certificate in Spanish Language and Culture, and an MS in Engineering & Technology Innovation Management. I now work in the defense industry on programs that contribute to improved quality of life for the warfighter and veterans, and contribute to improved national security. In addition to my professional career, I’m passionate about increasing access to and enthusiasm for STEM education, particularly for young girls. To further this mission, I founded The Princess Program for Budding Engineers, which includes princess-themed free-to-download STEM activity guides, curricula, and coloring pages so any parent, teacher, or student can offer a fun way to learn about STEM.
