Tech Women | Tech Girls – A Week of STEMspiration!

The NH High Tech Council (NHHTC) Tech Women | Tech Girls launched its first ever Tech Women Ambassadors week-long program, beginning Monday November 16 and concluding Friday November 20. Several workshops took place at various venues, encouraging young women across the state to consider a STEM-based career. I was lucky enough to visit with a great group of 9th grade girls at the White Mountain Community College in Berlin, NH last Friday to share my own experiences about pursuing a career in meteorology.

I thoroughly enjoyed telling my story and talking about all of the awesome and exciting weather events I get to experience working on the summit of Mount Washington. It’s so important to encourage young women to consider a career path that they may have never thought about before, or simply assumed would be impossible to pursue. Choosing a challenging career is never easy, but it’s certainly very rewarding. The opportunities are endless!
 
I look forward to future programs offered by Tech Women | Tech Girls!
