Our Team

Ashley Pereira, MS Ed.

Founder and CEO | ashley@careerinstem.com

I work with many teachers and principals, and one thing I hear time and time again is that they want to do more for career exploration, especially in STEM, but simply do not have enough time. I created Career In STEM® in response to the frustrations I experienced as a STEM major in college, as a K-12 science teacher, and now as a parent. It is my hope that in providing these resources, a STEM career will be within reach for any student, anywhere.
