President / Executive Director
Karen Blake co-founded STEMdelivered.org in 2011, becoming President and Chief Executive Officer.
STEMdelivered.org was founded to create a paradigm shift in the way the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics are taught.
Vision and foresight are the strengths Karen Blake brings to STEMdelivered.org.
Karen is currently serving on the Kern County Workforce Investment Board - Youth Council. She was appointed to the YC in November, 2015. Her goal for serving on the board is to understand the needs of the community, and develop programs that will meet these needs.
From her time on the board, she has begun to align STEMdelivered.org's focus on-going activities and longer professional development workshops for educators that will lend themselves to building long-term relationships with students and educators.
It is through these relationships that will have an lasting impact on the community STEMdelivered.org serves.
As President, her responsibility is to build a strong board. Though this process is ongoing, the board members bring a level of excellence to STEMdelivered.org. The board members bring their talents, vision and energy to STEMdelivered.org efforts to create a paradigm shift in how the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics are taught.
Earning an Associate of Arts in Computer Science & Information from North Harris County College, and a Bachelor of Science in geology from Sam Houston State University, Karen started her graduated studies in Environmental GeoChemistry at the University of Maine. This degree was not completed, as she opted to start her career in the petroleum industry after an opportunity opened up while interning in Bakersfield, California. Karen is a licensed Professional GeoScientist with the State of Texas.
Karen's commitment to her profession is demonstrated by the years of service on committees, such as the Pacific Section AAPG, AAPG, and the Orange County Engineering Council.
