Hey, I’m Katelyn!

Founder & CEO of The Curly Scientist

Take it from someone who has been through the trenches of STEM. Anything that could have gone wrong during my degree programs did. I am a first-gen STEM student, the first engineer, and now the first doctoral candidate in my family.

I’m someone who...

» struggled with bad advising. During the last semester of my senior year, I was told I was not graduating.

» was overlooked for advancement opportunities in the workplace

» had to fight to maintain ownership of experiments
