I am an EducationTech Trailblazer.
When I was 10 I wanted to be a news anchor/Celebrity infomercial host.
I work as the Project Manager at ScholarLab.
I am proud of intersecting the world of business, technology, art, and education to make a difference every day. It’s empowering to know that my diverse skill sets give me a unique ability to wear many different hats, think strategically, and impact the bottom line.
The biggest obstacle I have faced was the insecurities that come with taking the path less traveled. It took time to truly accept that being different is a strength (in real life, not just in feel-good movies)!
My advice to women is don’t think of technology as a standalone sector. All industries are impacted and shaped by technology, information, and innovation. Regardless of where you are now, follow technology in the news (and in your industry) and equip yourself with the skills necessary to stay relevant.
