Youth Speaking Engagements

In her most powerful role, Stephanie is a storyteller, bringing awareness to non-traditional careers. A highly regarded speaker and regular communicator, she shares her own vulnerable and honest experiences. Her stories smash through Imposter Syndrome, that nagging, corrosive, negative inner voice that says, "You don’t belong here." When asked why Stephanie does so much, she responds simply, "I want women to know they belong in STEM." Some women sit on Boards and NGOs. Others fundraise and advocate at a political, governmental level.

 

Stephanie’s talent lies in her willingness to work directly with the women themselves. "I speak to  women in a way that connects, sharing  failures and fears that lead into my successes."  Stephanie is a fierce promoter of the underdog, knowing that every superhero starts from modest beginnings. Says Stephanie, “Highlighting our superpowers helps the next-gen develop theirs.” Women applaud Stephanie for inspiring them into trades and STEM fields that they would never have considered.
