University Innovation Fellows

Program Officer

Empowering students to create their own futures is my passion. I currently work directly with college students across the U.S., through the University Innovation Fellows program, encouraging them to tap their entrepreneurial mindset. I assist in all aspects of program development, management and execution, including network development, recruitment, training, evaluation, marketing, events management and communications. University Innovation Fellows is a program of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), funded by the National Science Foundation and is co-managed by Stanford University and Venturewell.
