Tell us about a hobby or activity you enjoy outside your STEM career.

I absolutely love knitting. Making things with my hands is the best way to shut my brain down at the end of the day! Similar to my experience learning to code, before I started knitting I had all these preconceived notions about what it was like or who participated in that activity, but it turns out that anyone can learn to do either activity and find out that they love it!
