This video is part of the series SciGirls Profiles: Women in STEM, which includes 12 role model videos of women who are passionate about their STEM work, hobbies, families and making the world a better place. These videos introduce students to women working in traditionally male STEM occupations, and inspire them around career exploration in fields like technology, engineering, manufacturing and trades.  Each video provides explicit strategies for overcoming barriers and finding success and joy in jobs where women are heavily underrepresented.
