Inspired by George Washington Carver, After the Peanut was created in 2014. After the Peanut is a solution driven company, focusing on the power of knowledge and education in the face of adversity and challenge. The core foundation is to transform communities by increasing equity in K-12 STEAM education. This is accomplished by providing innovative, forward thinking, and real world experiences.

What I like best about working for After the Peanut:
It brings me joy to create spaces where girls can explore STEAM concepts and meet leaders that look like them. If students find a new way to build using tinkering, then all their dreams become attainable.
