Even though all of the WE Local conferences in North America were canceled, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) still recognized several people with WE Local Awards.  I was presented with the WE Local 2021 Local ELiTE (Emerging Leader in Engineering and Technology) Award.  This award honors engineers who have been actively engaged in an engineering or technology profession and have ten to fifteen years of cumulative engineering experience and consistent SWE involvement including both formal and informal leadership roles.

This year at WE20, I was recognized as an Outstanding SWE Counselor. I am grateful for the SWE members in B-Section at Kettering University and other Kettering SWE members who took the time to nominate me for this award. I enjoy working with both of the SWE sections at Kettering. Their enthusiasm for outreach and supporting women in STEM is inspiring. I am happy to be able to continue to support them as their counselor even though I have moved on to another position.

This year I was recognized as one of the Society of Women Engineers' Distinguished New Engineers.  This award is given to a maximum of 10 engineers each year.  The award recognizes women who have progressed in their technical careers, contributed to their local community, and to SWE.

I was selected for successfully navigating a career transition from industry to academia, for innovative research in engineering education, and for leadership in fulfilling the SWE mission.
