Lucretia has always been driven to “know more” and truly understand why and how things work. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be an engineer. Lucretia gained exposure to computing at a very young age, copying type-in-programs written in BASIC out of her father’s computer magazines. Later, she went on to study engineering at Stanford University and ultimately earned a degree in Computer Systems Engineering. After a successful 16+ year career in various technical roles in the financial services industry, she felt compelled to work more closely in her community and do something that would have a far greater impact. Galaxy Kids Code Club was created out of a drive to both inspire and support all children, especially young girls and underrepresented minorities to pursue an education in computer science. Originally from Denver, Colorado, Lucretia currently lives in Antioch, CA with her husband and two children. She is a member of the Computer Science Teachers Association and the National Afterschool Association.
