“ i’m really excited to continue The stem work that they are doing with local schools and universities because I think that’s really huge and especially as a female in the stem environment there is an old phrase I think it was actually from the south to be one you need to see one. So if a little girls get to see a senior female engineer they can look up and say I get to do that.”
