Strong As A #Mom – A STEM Loving Mom

The National Girls Collaborative Project invited me to share my story as a woman that pursued a career in STEM! I am so honored to be sharing!

“It was my freshman year
in college. I was taking the “weed out” courses of the premed
(biomedical science) major that I’d signed up for. I found myself spending
countless hours at the library studying, reading, and practicing- 
Chem 101 was a tough class, but I was feeling inspired by the content. I wanted
to read about it. I wanted to practice the problems. I wanted to learn as much
as I could. It seemed to be the perfect mix of science and math to satisfy my
brain, and, simply put, I was fascinated. I knew right then and there that I’d
be changing my major to chemistry. 

And so it was. I started
my journey, not knowing full well what I’d do.”

The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) encourages girls to pursue careers in STEM. Join their monthly NGCP E-newsletter, “like” them on Facebook, and/or “follow” them on Twitter to stay connected and receive future NGCP updates.

Please join me in
thanking the National Girls Collaborative Project in all that they do! I am raising funds to donate to their wonderful cause.

you are a mom, or just have a mom, we can all appreciate how difficult their
jobs are. They often get overlooked. I am here to say we can be strong,
independent, STEM women that are also amazing moms! Let’s celebrate these
