Profile Biography 
I am an alumni of the FIRST Tech Challenge competition program and currently am part of the regional planning committee for FIRST Tech Challenge events in the DFW area. In addition to event planning and coordinating, I have acted as a mentor for FIRST programs including FLL, FTC, and FRC. I also previously worked for REV Robotics, one of First's main suppliers, creating documentation and guides. One of the main focuses in my tenure in FIRST has been increasing engagement with women and girls.

Outside of FIRST I am a passionate STEAM advocate and have worked with other programs such as BEST and UT Dallas's Science and Engineering Education center, where we facilitated STEAM education by creating kits and exhibits for local libraries.

My degree is in Information Technology and Systems. I currently work for an IT advisory firm Gartner as a Research Engagement Services Specailst focused in aligning clients pressing technical questions with the best fit subject matter expert.
