Stephanie Paxson is the diversity and undergraduate education coordinator at the ASBMB. She is enthusiastic about growing a more diverse and inclusive scientific community through science outreach and communication. Paxson's passion for science and understanding how things work led her to earn a B.S. in biology from George Mason University. While in school, she had the opportunity to snorkel in Belize in order to study the flora and fauna of the country. When she’s not indulged in science, Paxson likes to spend time outdoors or bake in her tiny kitchen in Washington, D.C.
