Why Maureen?

Keynote Speaker & Author

When  the NASA Lewis Research Center hired me as a research engineer for the Propulsion Systems Laboratory, I thought, “They only hired me because they need more women.” I was filled with self-doubt.

The truth was that even though I wasn’t a straight-A student, it made sense for NASA to hire me. My childhood dream was to be an engineer. I had college summer internships at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. I interview well. 🙂

So, I was a great fit for NASA. I just didn’t believe it.

Terrified of failing, I worked harder than I thought possible. I believed if my boss saw my hard work, he wouldn’t notice I didn’t belong.

But with every project and promotion, that same fear snuck in. “I don’t belong here. I’m not as smart as everyone thinks I am.”

Years later I discovered millions suffer from the same self-doubt-fueled fear of Impostor Syndrome. It crushes creativity and stifles the strengths of individuals in organizations everywhere.

I dove into the topic and as a result of my research, my reflections, and my experience, YOU benefit! I show people how Impostor Syndrome affects their lives, and how to escape its grip. I’ll share my insights so you don’t have to suffer with it as long as I did, despite having built a great reputation at NASA.
