Supporting WIT…

Why did you start volunteering with WIT?

I started volunteering with WIT because after having been a member for a couple of years attending events, I wanted to become more involved so I could give back. As someone who doesn’t have an engineering background, I was able to grow my career through the help of some amazing women in STEAM careers who guided me. It was important to me that I “pay it forward,” and one way to do that was to be involved in WIT’s mission

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with WIT?

The most rewarding part is seeing how much fun the girls have at our events and helping to provide them with opportunities to learn and grow that they might not have otherwise.

What is your favorite program / event within WIT?

WIT Girls, of course
