I believe that story is a powerful vehicle that bears infinite potential to change the world. I work with clients to not only apply an intersectional DEI lens, but also incorporate engaging science concepts, prosocial elements, and social justice themes into their content. I feel so fortunate to carry forward my “Image of STEM” vision with this work.
Ada Twist, Scientist | Netflix
Winner of the 2022 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Preschool series, Ada Twist, Scientist centers on eight-year old Ada Twist and her two best friends, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck, who are asking big questions and working together to solve problems and discover the truth about everything! Kerri Grant serves as showrunner, co-executive producer and story editor. I (along with Alie Ward) served as a science consultant.
Eureka! | Disney Junior
Eureka is a young inventor who is way ahead of her time. Utilizing creative out-of-the-box thinking, she designs inventions and contraptions in the hopes of making the world a better place and moving her prehistoric community into a more modern era. I consulted on series development, highlighting core scientific and inclusion themes to incorporate in the series.
Inclusive STEM Content | PBS Digital Studios
Currently advising on a National Science Foundation funded, multi-sector project with PBS Digital studios. The core of the project focuses on telling compelling science stories in ways that are more engaging and relevant to groups that have been historically underrepresented in STEM—specifically, women as well as Black and Hispanic people. This is a unique approach because the work involves identifying, testing, and implementing tactics on YouTube and other social media platforms.
