Electric Girls builds girls’ confidence and capabilities by engaging them through STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Their programs help girls build fundamental STEM skills and then give girls the space, resources, and guidance to implement these skills into their own self-directed projects and inventions that they design, build, present, and take home.
Jillian Sandoval comes to Electric Girls as the new Executive Director, replacing founder Flor Serna in October 2019. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree at the University of New Orleans in Public Administration and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences from Tulane University. Jillian has 13 years of experience working in New Orleans nonprofits in human resources, finance, fundraising, volunteer management, community outreach & engagement, program development and evaluation. In her spare time, Jillian loves to read and tend to her garden.
