I am the founder and CEO of PopSmartKids. PopSmartKids is reimagining screentime to inspire the budding creators, writers and thinkers of tomorrow. I am passionate about raising tech-ready citizens and building innovative tech products. I serves on the board of Dottie Rose Foundation, a non-profit that encourages girls in STEM. I am an entrepreneur, speaker, tech geek, blogger, mom to two boys, and I have moved too much to stay on trail (no pun intended).

I share my behind-the-scenes as a woman in STEM and entrepreneur on IG under @girlchangetheworld
