    San Jacinto Council at the Lone Star Flight Museum

    On March 23rd, the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council hosted an incredible aviation education event at the Lone Star Flight Museum in Houston, Texas. I had the honor of speaking at this event, along aside the incredible Dr. Shelly Lesikar deZevallos, to dozens of middle and high school aged young women about my experience as a young woman pursuing aviation. It was incredible to see the enthusiasm in these young girls and to see the impact that the San Jacinto Council is making in the lives of Girls Scouts everywhere!

    AIAA SciTech Conference – 2024

    Through my collegiate and professional endeavors, I had the great honor of speaking as a Higher Orbits Panelist at the incredible AIAA SciTech Conference , a professional convention focused on aeronautics and astronautics, this past January.

    2023 National Gold Award Scholarship!

    Girl Scouting has always been an essential part of my identity. It was the program where I discovered my love of learning, made lifelong friends, and cultivated my passions.

    Progress with Girl Scouts of the USA

    The petition is now over 1,700 signatures! The support is incredible, so much so that we finally got the attention of Girl Scouts programming leadership! I recently had the privilege of meeting with two incredible women that serve as director and vice president on the Girl Scout programming and experience sectors. They reached out to me initially via email after them receiving word of the petition and advocacy efforts, and seeing the petition’s support. Major strides have been taken in the Girl Scouting program, including reevaluating curriculum and badges to better serve the Girl Scouts of the future. Due to these initiatives, the creation of an aviation or engineering badge…
