Profile Biography 
I knew I enjoyed chemistry in middle and high school, but it wasn't until I took a non-majors biology class in college while pursuing a teaching certificate that I learned my true love for biology. I did undergraduate research, winning an excellence in chemistry research award, and volunteered in a local ER, but I found my true passion working as a mentor for pre-college and college students. I served as a First-year Interest Group (FIG) mentor, an Honors Colloquium mentor, an undergraduate teaching assistant, a Mad Science instructor, and a Policy on Conflict Resolution (UTPCR) mentor at The University of Texas at Austin. I earned a BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology from The University of Texas at Austin in 2011 and continued into the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. I earned my MBA from Texas State University in 2018.

I worked previously as the Senior Program Coordinator for K-12 outreach for the Women in Engineering Program at The University of Texas at Austin. I worked with high school recruitment and coordinated on-campus outreach programs such as Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, CREATEatUT, Women Engineers at UT (WEatUT), and Your Opportunities are Unlimited at UT (YOUatUT).

I moved to Seattle in 2018 and now work as a Program Manager for a small consulting firm. We work with non-profits and mission-driven organizations to help them to run their programs, events, and organizations better so they can achieve their missions! It is a dream!

I live in Seattle and love playing with my corgi, corny science jokes, colorful pens, and lattes.
