Hi, I’m Angelique

About Me

I’m an engineer with 25 years of experience in operations, strategy, and innovation. I was a Director of R&D at aluminum giant Alcoa and Chief Innovation Officer at multibillion dollar global steelmaker, Aperam. I have a Ph.D. from Penn State and an MBA from MIT.

After years of successfully leading innovation, I discovered my true passion is developing people, not products.

I know first-hand the challenges of being underrepresented at work, and I am especially passionate about helping to build diverse STEM leaders.
