“I have enjoyed being surrounded by a network of women who support each other. The Dallas SWE community has helped me find ways to advocate for other women and girls in the STEM Community. I have equally enjoyed being a part of the programming committee and helping to bring in engaging speakers to speak about topics that help members develop themselves personally and professionally.”
