As founder and President of Lady Trailblazer, Inc. she has put her research to work by developing STEM Persistence programs for girls and women. Her strengths lie in her diverse experiences in leading organizational change, program development, and problem-solving.

“When I retired from the military, I knew this was what I wanted to do. I recognized the need for a nonprofit organization that would help young girls develop and shape vital skills of leadership and problem-solving, and most of all help them discover their “why.” I believe every girl deserves the opportunity to learn, persevere, and thrive, and that is why I founded Lady Trailblazer.”

Her commitment to serve is a part of her DNA. She is committed to empowering the next generation of women leaders by developing equitable and sustainable curricula and relevant problem-solving applications.
