"Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams for when dreams go, life is a barren field frozen with snow."--Langston Hughes
Cynthia has a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Administration from the IU Richard Fairbanks School of Public Health and her MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University. She was previously employed with Roche Diagnostics for 18 years and as of August 2021 is now with Purdue University as a Senior Health Equity Analyst.
Her "Aha moment" was in a meeting at Roche when one of the organizational leaders shared the outreach efforts Women & Hi Tech worked in. Cynthia knew that she wanted to jump in and work within the Indiana STEM community as well!
Her goal for her committee is to expand its reach to work closely with underserved communities and provide resources and opportunities that they may not receive or be aware of.
