We are thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Interplanetary Initiative team, Brooke Owen, who has joined us this month as our Senior Program Coordinator of Student Engagement!
Meet Brooke, a rising star in the Interplanetary Initiative universe! Holding a B.S. in Biological Sciences with a focus on Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior from Arizona State University, she’s got the skills to traverse scientific frontiers.
While still an undergrad, Brooke dove headfirst into the NASA Psyche mission, managing both the Psyche Inspired internship program and Student Collaboration interns. It was there she discovered a true calling: igniting the spark of space exploration in the minds of young people. Witnessing their enthusiasm and potential gave her a mission on Earth just as important as those reaching for the stars.
When she’s not plotting pathways to the cosmic unknown, you can find her curled up with a good book in a cozy cafe, leashing up her furry companions for an adventurous hike, or diving into the latest skincare trends!
So, whether she’s helping future astronauts find their footing or simply enjoying the simple pleasures of life, Brooke is a force to be reckoned with. Keep your eyes on this one – she’s destined to leave her mark on the universe, one step at a time!
