Advocate for Girls in STEM
Author / Speaker
NICE TO MEET YOU!
I am a researcher, educator, and author who focuses on the impact of new technologies and media on young children. My research explores strategies for breaking gender stereotypes and engaging girls in STEM from an early age. I am the co-creator of the ScratchJr Coding Cards: Creative Coding Activities and author of the book Breaking the STEM Stereotype: Reaching Girls in Early Childhood. My work has been featured in GeekWire, WIRED magazine, the New York Times, and more.
I am currently the Senior Program Developer at the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP), a nonprofit organization focused on advancing the agenda of gender equality in STEM. I also regularly work in a consulting capacity with groups like PBS Kids, the DevTech Research Group, the Childcare Education Institute, and local schools on edtech related endeavors! This has involved research, professional development, writing, course development, teaching, and more.
