I have over 25 years of professional and volunteer experience, and most recently as Director of the Secretary of Defense’s independent Federal Advisory Committee on best business practices, the Defense Business Board. Previously, I developed marketing strategies and negotiated bilateral agreements between carriers in the international telecommunications industry. I am proud to be recognized as an Outstanding Leader and Volunteer with Girl Scouts USA.
"I truly believe inspiration requires a personal touch, and if we're going to successfully inspire youngsters to pursue STEM-related careers, those role models need to be in the classroom where they'll impact the greatest number of students. Growing the pipeline of STEM professionals is a national security priority, so we cannot afford only to have after-school STEM programs. STEM professionals need to become a standard presence in our classrooms."
