The weekend after the second week of school I boarded a plane to San Diego for the WE Local 2020 Society of Women Engineers Conference. I will not lie; it was challenging to pick up and leave for three days when I was barely into the semester, but it turned out to be so much […]

The Time I Met the Governor

Hey y’all! My life has been absolutely crazy lately, and I have barely had the opportunity to sit down. So, now that I have a little time to reflect, I have a fun little storytime about the time I met the Governor. A couple of weeks ago was UNM Day– a day dedicated to Lobos […]
