Hi! I'm Mel Butcher

I teach early-career engineering (and STEM) how to jumpstart their career.

And I support ambitious women in advancing their careers.


As we inch toward the end of the year, I'm really grateful for everything I've been able to engage on this year. In 2022, I got to:

  • Host our very first ACtS in-person event, Leadership Is, here in Madison, WI

  • Give my first real keynote

  • Earn my first paid speaking gig

  • Take a new day job with an amazing boss

  • Help my parents move across the country to be near me

  • Complete the altMBA

It's been a rewarding, challenging, emotional year. Thank you for supporting me.
