How LinkedIn has helped you in your careers or businesses:

Linkedin has been valuable with connecting to other serious business professionals in space and tech but also those who are interested or curious about space. Being able to reach more people from diverse backgrounds to welcome them into space is my primary goal.


Tips on how to Thrive on LinkedIn:

I post primarily about diversity and inclusivity in space but also about the outreach we do through my foundation SPACE for a Better World. With our valuable network of astronaut partners we do space art projects, messaging and content to connect the space curious to the space serious.

What I use Linkedin for:

Networking and raising awareness about space, aviation, women’s issues and promoting inclusivity and diversity. I believe that space technology, research and development are the key to solving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. If the right people with the resources start paying attention to what’s at their disposal and use it for good in a more targeted way, kind of like how the pharmaceutical companies made a vaccine so quickly for covid, then we could get to solutions and make an impact on a broader scale.

Number of Followers:



Marketing and Aerospace

Who am I:

I am passionate about inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds. I grew up as one of ten kids in South Dakota from a humble background. In spite of my circumstances, I’ve gotten to experience and make some of my own dreams come true. I’ve gotten to do “impossible” things because I worked for a man who walked on the Moon and I saw firsthand how the impact of Apollo and the first moon landing made on the hearts and mind of a generation.

I want to use my experience and knowledge to light the spark of pursuing big dreams in other people. I think that space is a great unifier and the reminder that we’re all just humans on the same planet. I’m particularly focused on promoting women’s issues and people of color, those who often get overlooked. And I think connecting the mainstream world to what is going on in space is one of the best ways I can bring my experience, knowledge and contacts to make a difference.

What I do:

I manage astronauts for appearances, licensing and branding but I’m also a marketer, content creator, experiential producer and big idea producer and space and science communicator.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

To learn about ways space unites us as humans on the same planet, and how I think that space and science are the key to making a better world for future generations.

Who I follow on Linkedin:

NASA, other inspiring women in aerospace.

❝I posted this about Dr. Shirley Jackson because she’s not a common household name. And yet, she should be. Also, I try to post photos of trailblazers like this when they were young so that others can see someone who looks like them. Which may inspire them to aim for a dream they didn’t think they could do before. One image and statement could be that powerful.❞
