“It’s high time we use technology and build the solution. This is why I – a woman, a mother, a professional – started and am leading this software technology company.”
By Catheryne Nicholson (Co-Founder & CEO, MommaZoo)
I’m an engineer. I’m a mother. I’m a leader. I’m co-founder of MommaZoo. As with most women, the roads of my life are these: woman, career, mother. I had amazing teachers in high school and I fell in love with physics, geometry, and calculus. This led me to study aeronautical engineering at the U.S. Naval Academy.
It was tough. Really tough. Back then, many men (and women, unfortunately) had idiotic opinions that women did not belong at the Academy or the Navy (these were pre-Tailhook times). Same goes for women cutting it in engineering (this bias unfortunately still exists). That really pisses me off.
