What inspired you to pursue a career in STEM?
Simply the desire to know more and be smart! Growing up, my parents valued education and pushed me into challenging math classes. I don’t think I realized I liked STEM and was pursuing it as a career until my sophomore year in college studying Electrical Engineering. Then I just refused to quit!

What is the coolest project you have worked on and why?
The next one! 🙂

Role models and heroes:
My grandparents. They are amazing people that are well traveled and well loved. I would love to be like them at their age – funding 10 (and counting) undergraduate educations, visiting friends all over the world, and building a healthy and happy home. Their retirement life is just an extension of how successful they were in their careers and seeing the rewarding outcome of hard work is a real inspiration for me.

Why do you loving working in STEM?
I love being able to intelligently add to any conversation and talk to anyone about anything. STEM makes you well-rounded! I don’t think other degrees challenge your mind the same way and it enables so many opportunities with people, technology, and education.

Advice for future STEMinists?
Talk about your goals with others. Taking that first step of picking up the phone to call someone for the first time is the hardest. From there you can only learn more and improve your chances of success. And the more others know about your goals, the more they can help you achieve them!

Favorite website or app:
Professionally: Linkedin because it has everything from interesting articles, great networking, and industry groups to local events, and job searching.
Personally: Ticket to Ride iPad game because I love strategy board games and being able to play anytime anywhere is awesome.
