Program Manager - STEM, Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland Council
Building girls' confidence is my passion. I develop original programs and curriculum to encourage and inspire girls to try, explore, engage in, and enjoy science, technology, engineering and mathematics. I connect women already breaking through glass ceilings to the girls that will follow in their footsteps. I measure my success in the number of young women who tell me they're ready to try something new, something scary, or something weird in the name of STEM!
Beyond Thin Mints: Girl Scouting & STEM

When you think about Girl Scouts, you probably don't think about Juliette Gordon Low, the hard-of-hearing inventor that helped bring scouting to the United States. You're probably thinking about cookies. Cookies are a Girl Scout's first introduction to entrepreneurship. Allison Martinson introduces them to engineering. At Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland, Girl Scouts are learning to use their dreams and ideas to make, build, design, create, dissect, and analyze. Badgerland's program introduces girls to code, robotics, entomology, and rocketry, connects girls to inspiring adult volunteers, and encourages girls to use STEM to make the world a better place.
