Over the years, I've gotten to work with many great mentors. And whenever I asked them how I could repay their kindness, they always told me to pay it forward.
I took that to heart and, to give back, I've taken on volunteer leadership roles at the local and international level:
Co-Organizer of the Minnesota Quantum Computing Meetup
At the Minnesota Quantum Computing Meetup, my team members and I have made a place for quantum computing enthusiasts to come together, hear talks from world-class talent and get access to resources that'll help them build meaningful careers in the quantum computing industry. For more information (and to RSVP!), check out our Meetup page.
Associate Board Member of Girls on the Run Twin Cities
At Girls on the Run, we inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. And I'm an Associate Board member because I believe that girls have limitless potential and should be free to boldly pursue their dreams.
Senior Advisor on the Women in Quantum Advisory Board
I lead our Mentorship program (which is a great fit) because I firmly feel that coaching can have a very positive impact on young professionals, plus I love building relationships and connecting people to the resources they need to success in the quantum computing space.
