Title: Being the Change: The Power of Community
About the Presenter: Amy’s 18-year career has spanned both academia and industry in engineering and engineering management roles. After leaving education she continues to have a passion for encouraging students of all ages and backgrounds to pursue careers in micro and nanotechnology. Outside of work, she volunteers for the United Way, Girls Inc, and 4H programs and is constantly looking for opportunities to merge community programs with education institutions and industry partners. Amy is honored to be a part of this year’s MNT Special Interest group to support programs such as these that fostered her own development and opened the many doors to a fulfilling and diverse career.
