If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.” – Aaliyah. Cat lives by this quote, and she encourages every student she works with to come ready to dive into their work with the same mentality! Cat received her B.A. in Medical Humanities and Chemistry from Baylor University and has spent the past few years studying, traveling, and working abroad in Europe, Central America, and West Africa. After co-founding a non-profit for school children in West Africa and realizing the genuine joy of science and math of elementary and middle school aged students, Cat brought her ideas back home to create an interactive educational YouTube series called iNsAnE! Science™. This fun, learning program for students by students, caught the attention of the USC NAI program. This brought Cat to the LA area to help guide and expand USC’s neighborhood science program while building on and incorporating her iNsAnE! Science™ concepts. Though helping young students realize the true excitement of math and science is Cat’s passion, Cat’s true love is guiding all students to fulfill their greatest potential in all aspects of their education.
