“Serving with AWIS has provided me the opportunity to network with successful women in STEM, organize professional development events for my peers, and mentor the next generation of young women pursuing degrees in the sciences.”

What do you think is the most important attribute that enables a woman to successfully lead a community that supports
women in STEM?

Vision. Leaders have a unique vision that enables them to see beyond the challenges of the present and equips them to inspire others to pursue a unified goal.

What do you aspire to accomplish in your career and why?

My work addresses the national backlog of sexual-assault case evidence. I hope to make a lasting impact by taking part in developing the technology desperately needed to counter the present backlog and provide immediate results to criminologists processing these kits. When justice can be delivered more rapidly, the frequency of violent crimes against women should significantly diminish.

How has AWIS helped you professionally and/or personally?

Serving with AWIS has provided me the opportunity to network with successful women in STEM, organize professional development events for my peers, and mentor the next generation of young women pursuing degrees in the sciences.
