Bonnie Baker: I am member of Soroptimist International of Whitefish. My hobby/business is making jewelry. I love the creative process of coming up with new designs and making sure all is symmetrical. The reason I joined the EYH Team was to help spark the interest of young women to have the confidence to go out into the world and fulfill any dream they have. I love working with the “presenter team” and reaching out to amazing women working in STEM and getting them on board with the program.
Fay Wolf: I have been a florist in Kalispell for over 35 years. I have a husband and three grown children and five grandchildren. I love to garden and read in my spare time. I am on the EYH committee because I love youngsters and want to help them reach their potential in this increasingly technical world. EYH offers so much inspiration for girls, and I am delighted to be involved and serve as treasurer for the committee.
Amy Stewart: : I participate in EYH because I feel very fortunate and fulfilled in my job as a software engineer and I hope to help girls find their way into careers that are equally rewarding and enjoyable to them. It has been a gratifying experience to rebuild the website and the computerized registration process for this amazing event. I love to explore all corners of Montana on foot, skis, or a bike.
Jodee McDowell: : I have served as the Presenter Coordinator since 2006, and keep coming back because I have so much fun. I am so impressed with the wonderful workshop presenters who step forward to make the program a success. I feel rewarded by the big smiles on the girls’ faces as they explore the conference each year. I have a business degree and owned and operated a wholesale distribution business for nearly 25 years that employed 158 employees. I know firsthand how important math skills were to my business success.
Diane Yarus: : Serving as the Chair for the EYH committee has been an honor and privilege. I earned a BS degree in Biology and started a graduate program in computer science in the early 80’s. I have been a research assistant, programmer/analyst, mom, and the owner of an HVAC company. I use my science background every day. I love that EYH provides our girls with amazing local female heroes and encourages science literacy so they can build a bright future for themselves. My husband and I have three sons, two dogs, two cats, four sheep and chickens.
