Leadership Experience

During the spring of 2017, I served as a legislative fellow in the office of Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03), where supported the Congresswoman in her goal to engage more women in STEM education and jobs. I scheduled meetings with National Science Foundation (NSF) representatives to learn more about the INCLUDES program, which helps underrepresented groups get started in the STEM field.

I’m excited to continue this work at the MSU Blackstone Launchpad. The Launchpad is a business accelerator that serves the students of Montana State University. My responsibility is widening the reach of the Launchpad and bringing in new people and ideas into our accelerator. I look forward to expanding the Blackstone Launchpad’s network and spread entrepreneurial skills in communities that might not otherwise be aware of what we offer.

How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

Please contact me if you are an entrepreneur looking to engage in the Blackstone Launchpad at MSU. We are always looking for new mentors to connect with our students. Successful female entrepreneurs and role models are crucial to  teaching these business skills in the Launchpad. I always like meeting new people and learning new things, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the MSU Blackstone Launchpad or any other aspects of my role.

Other Information

I was placed at the MSU Blackstone Launchpad through Americorps VISTA, which is a national service organization focused on reducing poverty. I will be in Bozeman for the next year working in this capacity.
