"If my parents and I had not been fortunate enough to have our collective eyes opened to all of the opportunities available in higher education, I would not be working as a scientist at a national lab today. I am living proof that it is important, as a society, to encourage anyone from any walk of life who has the will and determination to pursue their chosen field of study to the highest level possible."

"My personal goal is to inspire by example. I don’t often talk about being a woman in science; I’m too busy being a woman who does science. I hope to inspire younger women scientists when they see that good science can happen by working part-time while raising three children."

"I think we need to encourage failure, not for the sake of failure, but to discover how to learn from it and succeed in spite of it. So many people don’t take a chance because they think they won’t succeed. I think we also need to show that STEM careers can be very rewarding in many ways."
