Captain Sunita “Suni” Williams, USN From Aquanaut to Astronaut “Breaking Barriers: Sound, Light and Gender for All Humanity” As you wakeup on this New Year’s Fiscal Eve, this 30th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 30th of 30 inspirational women role models who have rocked our world. From the depths of the sea to the heights of outer space, CAPT "Suni" Williams has always had a yen for exploration. Suni completed Navy Diving Officer School, followed by Naval Aviation Flight School. Whether flying in the Persian Gulf supporting no-fly zones in Iraq, or in support of relief missions following Hurricane Andrew, Suni was a role model and mentor. She completed Navy Test Pilot school, and in 1998 she entered NASA astronaut training and became a subject matter expert in Robotics. Suni was selected by NASA to be the Commander of the Commercial Boeing Starliner mission to the Int’l Space Station – scheduled for launch in 2021! Suni will have launched into space in 3 different rockets – the Space Shuttle, the Russian Soyuz Spacecraft—and soon, very soon, the Boeing Starliner! She spent 321 days gazing down on planet Earth logging an impressive 50 hours of space walks. Suni continues to blaze her own trail, breaking barriers while emphasizing the importance of early exposure for girls to STEM education. #USNA #NASA #ASNE #NavyDiver #NavyAstronauts #womeninspace
Stephanie Hill. Executive Vice President, Lockheed Martin THE Accidental Engineer. "If You Can't See It - You Can't Be It!" As you wakeup on this 29th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 29th of 30 amazing and awesome inspirational women role models, trailblazing pioneers and STEM advocates who have rocked our world. Stephanie Hill's commitment to mentoring others has been a career priority. She has made STEM education her passion. Stephanie has been quoted as saying she hoped her outreach efforts would become contagious. Indeed, they have. You can’t attend a STEM event or speaking engagement with students at her alma mater, or at engineering symposia, without seeing Stephanie passionately engaging with the next generation of innovators. As a sign of her commitment to mentoring others, Stephanie has been honored time and again for not only her career achievements, but also for her community outreach, especially in the advancement of STEM education: Savoy magazine’s “2020 List of Most Influential Black Executives,” Black Enterprise magazine’s “2019 List of Most Powerful Women in Corporate America,” Black Engineer of the Year..., and many more. Stephanie does everything possible to make sure women and any underrepresented minorities can enter the STEM pipeline and succeed, as she says, “When I meet the next generation, it inspires me.” #STEM #WomenMentors #BEYA #ASNE #womenintechnology #TheAccidentalEngineer AccidentalEngineer
Stefanie Goebel, USNA ‘80 The Importance of Female Mentors & How to Become One. Mentor Extraordinaire. As you wakeup on this 28th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 28th of 30 amazing and awesome women role models and trailblazing women of character who have rocked our world. Stefanie has been the inspirational wakeup call for everyone she has mentored. Stefanie Goebel is a true pioneer. As a member of the first class of women to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy, Stefanie has always taken the path less traveled, and her career as a mentor has made all the difference for so many women [and men]. Stef developed the inaugural, highly acclaimed, cutting-edge, web-based eMentor program for AcademyWomen. Stef was a leader in American Association of University Women (AAUW) girls’ summits that included workshops designed to raise awareness of, and interest in, STEM careers. Stef developed a high school sexual harassment training program in conjunction with the local branch of AAUW, convincing the drama club to perform the program as skits. Stef spent her whole career making a better pathway for young professionals, connecting people, mentoring them, opening doors for them. Stefanie and the numerous mentoring programs she has developed, led, or participated in have driven change, promoted diversity and made connections that have positively changed the career paths of so many aspiring young professionals. Stef Goebel has earned the accolades she has received as “mentor extraordinaire”! Stef’s key advice: 1. Don’t be so sure you know what you want to do with your life. See what others are doing around you. In other words, look for role models. If you find a role model that’s doing something amazing, don’t assume that you can’t do it, too. With good mentorship, there is nothing you can’t do. 2. Always look for mentors. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, always look for mentors. 3. Women, successful women, women in STEM, women who are now in positions of influence over the younger generations need to continue to be that voice, that support system and that bulldozer in removing obstacles for those that follow in their footsteps.” USNA 80 #usna #usnastem #usnamentors #STEM USNA Women's SIG
CAPT Laura Collins, USCG Be True To Your Core Values: Personally and Professionally. Leader, Mentor, STEM Advocate. As you wakeup on this 27th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 27th of 30 amazing and inspirational women role models -- engineers and STEM advocates -- true trailblazing women of character who have rocked our world. CAPT Collins graduated from the USCG Academy Class of 1994 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. She earned a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. Laura has served on six Coast Guard Cutters, the last two at sea assignments were on National Security Cutters as X.O. of USCGC Stratton, and C.O. of the USCGC Bertholf. CAPT Collins shore assignments include Staff Engineer at the Marine Safety Center, as Work Life Supervisor in Kodiak, as military aide to the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, and on the Commandant’s Advisory Group. During our interview with CAPT Collins it was evident that she has mastered the art of mentorship in all commands she has been stationed. Laura told ASNE, "I do find that messaging to younger generations needs to be well tailored, to the individual, not to the gender, in order to be relevant to them. There’s a lot to be said for the on-to-one conversation and mentoring.” Captain Collin’s contributions to the USCG as a role model for women and as an inspirational STEM advocate have been astounding. #ASNE #STEM USCGA USCG Academy #WomenInSTEM USCG Women’s Leadership Initiative - Liberty Chapter
Juliana Vida, USNA ‘94 It’s All About Turning Data Into Doing. Naval Aviator, Technology Evangelist. As you wakeup on this 26th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 26th of 30 amazing and inspirational women role models - engineers and STEM advocates - and true trailblazing women pioneers who have rocked our world. Juliana is a graduate of the Class of 1994, the first USNA class of women who could go into combat-related roles. Juliana served honorably for 24 years in the Navy as a dual-qualified Surface Warfare Officer and Naval Aviator. Juliana became the Navy Deputy CIO upon retirement from the Navy. Juliana's advice to girls: "It is important to own who we are because we need role models, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or whatever the demographic, to be out there for the next generation. Each of us has the opportunity, the responsibility, to be like my first career counselor. Unmask the fears and motivate those who have chained themselves to the flight deck with false fears or apprehension, so that they can be catapulted to greater heights. Splunk created a position to leverage Juliana’s career military and government experience and skills as a master communicator and storyteller becoming Splunk’s Chief Technical Advisor – Public Sector. Julie Rosati Vida is an awesome mentor and extraordinary role model to women [and men]! Juliana was recently recognized on the Washington Exec “Top 25 Cyber Execs to Watch in 2020” list. #ASNE #USNA #STEM #WomenInSTEM #WomenInTechnology Julie Rosati Vida USNA Alumni Association - Greater Washington Chapter
Captain Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, USN (Ret.) Navy Diver Turned NASA Astronaut. An Out of This World Inspiration. As you wakeup on this 25th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 25th of 30 inspirational role models and trailblazing women pioneers who have rocked our world. CAPT Stefanyshyn-Piper was inspired to become a Navy Diver, then NASA Astronaut after achieving undergrad and graduate degrees from MIT in Mechanical Engineering. Heide’s first voyage to space was on the Space Shuttle ATLANTIS. Her 2nd NASA mission was the 12th expedition of the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO -12) in the Aquarius underwater laboratory, training in the undersea environment for prolonged space exploration. Her 3rd NASA mission was on the Space Shuttle ENDEAVOUR. She completed 33 hours and 42 minutes on her 5 spacewalks and two trips to space. After departing NASA and returning to the Navy, Heide served as Chief Technology Officer to Naval Sea Systems Command, as the C.O. of Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, and as the C.O. of Southwest Regional Maintenance Center. This Navy diver turned NASA astronaut–who returned back to the Navy and her roots as a naval engineer and Navy Diver-- is a truly exceptional and inspirational women role model who has not only rocked our world, but also in outer space.
Dr. Angela Moran Using the Power of STEM to Mold the Next Generation STEM 'Guru' As you wakeup on this 24th day of Sep, the American Society of Naval Engineers - ASNE introduces you to our 24th of 30 amazing and inspirational women role models - engineers and STEM advocates - and true trailblazing women pioneers who have rocked our world. Dr. Angela Moran is a frequent inspirational 'STEM Rock Star' of Naval STEM social media across the country. In addition to teaching engineering to Midshipmen, she is the visionary and energy behind the Naval Academy's powerful STEM outreach programs. Spearheading the National and International STEM outreach program for USNA, Angie inspires women by involving them in leading creative STEM events in addition to her ongoing work as a model researcher and educator. Angie has organized annual USNA Girls STEM conferences that have reached thousands of participants. In light of current 2020 social distancing restrictions, she quickly pivoted and created a digital conference for the school that shared videos and innovative resources from a diverse group of USNA educators. Angie says the best part of her 'job' in STEM is that: "I have never regretted my choice, nor have I ever had a dull day at work, because I learned engineers make the world a better place. I tell students that pursuing an engineering career opens up amazing challenges and even greater opportunities." Angie's inquisitive mind and pure passion for how things "work" have driven her and defined her career journey. Key mentors and role models, including her parents, siblings, and teachers, helped prepare her ascendance as a STEM leader. Fast forward to today, where Dr. Angie Moran has become that STEM 'Guru', known internationally as that role model and champion for the countless students she has touched as an educator, leader, and STEM advocate. #STEM #ASNE #usnastem U.S. Naval Academy STEM Center for Education and Outreach USNA Mechanical Engineering #usnawomen USNA Electrical & Computer Engineering
