    The Empwering Women Podcast


    I am a partner of the Empowering Women in Industry organization. My role in the organization is hosting and producing the Empowering Women Podcast, where I interview women leaders to inspire the next generation of leaders. The Podcast is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Spotify.

    I am also proud of my past podcast, STEMxm, where I interviewed over 25 amazing women for the show. It was gratifying to have a vision and make it come to fruition. I handled every aspect of production from securing guests to interview, cutting/editing audio, and the full-spectrum of marketing efforts. Although I ended this podcast, I learned so much from going through the process. You can view the episode list here and access the podcast on iTunes here.
