The Minnesota STEM Partnership is a lifelong support and mentor partnership intended to guide students (and especially their families) through a multitude of options in STEM activities and professional development from Kindergarten to Career!
Increasing diversity in STEM programs, positively influence post-secondary high school graduation & continuation rate %’s, and prepare students for STEM workforce pipeline fulfillment.
An IT Veteran with 36 year’s of corporate and volunteer experience has prepared me for this challenge! I am also a member and leader in several professional, educational, and technical organizations across the country. Each year, we attend a variety of webinars and conferences to better guide our students toward successful decisions in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and professions.
My life's work is focused on this effort so much so I received my doctorate in education and went on to start a technical & education consulting practice.
In essence, I have been working as an educator for the past three decades without realizing my true passion!
We look forward to serving you!
Service to my community is an imperative and core part of my DNA. Helping students and families understand how to achieve and succeed in STEM activities and courses while preparing them for college and technical certifications is MSP’s mission. Ethnic and female student dissipation in key STEM programs in later grades is a key objective this initiative also seeks to resolve.

Since 2005 we've worked through national & local organizations to promote student success with family support! The Minnesota STEM Partnership is designed to leverage decades of specific STEM experience to promote a sustainable high school pipeline towards options in education and careers in technology.
We go where the need is greatest so that all families and students are welcome and prepared to succeed.
The Minnesota STEM Partnership is a lifelong partnership intended to guide students and especially their families through a multitude of STEM activities, soft skills and professional development from kindergarten to career!
Families and students unfamiliar with dozens of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) options, programs and activities may feel overwhelmed figuring out what is available or where to direct their education efforts. Family priorities are focused on surviving daily challenges and in many cases can use help navigating STEM options in education and careers for their student(s). Despite how welcoming many programs can be, some STEM after school programs often make students feel uncomfortable or feel aren’t a good fit or too hard. We're here to help you find and walk you through what yis best for your student. Let us help guide the way.
MSP membership is free to families and students! Those who agree to participate in a confidential longitudinal technology leadership development study will also benefit from this organization.

Collaboration with an incredible group of organizations locally is a key success factor. Finding those organizations geographically close to students who need them most and connecting them is our mission. Our primary objective is student success. We are here to help support a positive engagement with our partner organizations - with the student‘s needs in mind first.
We are dedicated to bringing national organizations and support to local Minnesota students. Organizations such as BDPA, NSBE, BiT and others at the forefront of providing "off ramp" options from Minnesota only programs when necessary. We’ll leverage a national family of STEM students and professionals to enable student success locally and abroad.
We are dedicated to supporting students from Kindergarten to Career! The roads are sometimes difficult as students move from primary to secondary school with a dramatic drop-off in participation in higher grade levels. MSP intends to promote programs and expectations for higher post-secondary program retention and graduation rates.
