Who Am I

I have a proven history creating innovative solutions to complex problems throughout my three decades at NASA. I offer outcome-based, disruptive design thinking to bring about positive results.

Social Entrepreneurship

At NASA, I championed innovative business practices through new program design that leveraged social media, advanced technology, non-traditional partnerships, and community engagement, most recently  NASA Datanauts, the International Space Apps Challenge, and LAUNCH.org. My federal experience harnessing the sharing economy for social impact, project creation, and skill development translates well at the local level.

Current Activities

I'm honored to serve on the Volunteer McKinney Board of Directors, the Collin County Culture of Innovation Committee, and as an Advisor to YMCA's Youth in Government Club at McKinney Boyd High School. I'm developing a new project to foster social impact through female entrepreneurship. Stay tuned for more details.
