This past weekend, on February 15th I was thrilled to provide an Introduction to Cyber Security workshop to the girls of Awesome Ambitions; an organization with the quest to inspire young women to set high goals for themselves and give them the tools to achieve them. Provided a class on the binary numbering system and had the girls create beautiful jewelry in binary as a reminder of what they learned.

Beth Strobel moderated the panel of Women in Security – Kansas City, with me, Karen Mahan, Melissa Spicer, CISM, Lisa Chiles; and the girls toured the Terracon Consulting facilities in Lenexa, Kansas. It was a great partnership event with the greater Kansas City community.

I am always honored to be able to educate and prepare our youth for tomorrow’s STEM opportunities.
