Jane Jackson : Career Change Coach | Podcast Host

Women in STEM:  Hannah Stevens and Taylor Perko are two impressive ladies who co-host The Blonde Blueprint to Engineering, a podcast focused on increasing diversity in engineering through fun, informal conversations. 

These two, young female engineers are figuring out the industry as they go and I was lucky enough to be invited on their podcast.  While speaking with them I realised what inspiring guests they would be on YOUR CAREER podcast as these Aerodynamics and Astronautics Engineers graduates will surely inspire all women in STEM around the world.

Growing up, Hannah Stevens was always fascinated by planes, rockets, and space.  Hanna is an Aerodynamics Engineer at Boeing.

Her passion, mixed with a strong desire to succeed in things that are deemed difficult or impossible, brought her to aerospace engineering - where she can not only blaze new trails for women and other underrepresented groups in the industry, but also build rockets that take us to new worlds or design planes that seem to defy physics! 

Her leadership style is focused around change - how can processes be improved or how can we create better solutions for ourselves or our customers? This mentality helps her thrive in her role as an aerodynamics engineer in flight sciences and product development. 

Taylor Perko is an Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering major at the University of Washington. She’s passionate about space and space technology.

Currently Taylor is at the NASA Johnson Space Center co-op program, working in various divisions within mission control including the Environmental and Thermal Operations Pathways Intern in the Space Flight Systems Division; Trajectory Operations Pathways Intern in the Flight Dynamics Division and Robotic Operations Pathways Intern in the EVA, Robotics, and Crew Systems Division.

We have a lively discussion about how these two inspiring women got into engineering, the challenges they faced and how they overcame those challenges to excel in their respective fields. 

There are few young professionals who are brave enough to tackle diversity topics and yet their podcast, The Blond Blueprint of Engineering, peels back the curtain on what it takes to get ahead in a competitive field.
