Biography
I started my career as an engineer. I enjoyed solving problems and improving manufacturing processes. I also served on the startup team for an optical fiber facility; we put all the people and systems in place to ensure the factory could run around the clock. After ten years, I decided to merge my technical background with my passion for education and my ability to "get" kids. Now I teach young people how to think like engineers! I taught at two Montessori schools in Boston over the past eight years, and founded an award-nominated, hands-on Kindergarten Engineering Design Workshop that was inspired by MIT's famous Design and Manufacturing course 2.007 and the Museum of Science, Boston. My work has been featured in national media and I will be speaking at TEDxJacksonville in October 2017. I am particularly passionate about engaging girls in STEAM education. I have lived in eleven states and I look forward to starting new adventures in Atlanta with my family in fall 2017.
