Veronica is the first person in her family to pursue higher education and received her Bachelor's degree from California State University, San Bernardino As a PHD student at the University of Michigan, Veronica felt vulnerable and isolated being the only woman of color in her lab. This isolation is what drove her to start Science in Color with her husband and a group of friends. She sits on several committees focused on diversity and is a NSF GRFP Scholar. However, she claims her biggest accomplishment so far is raising her two daughters.

Janel is an undergraduate student majoring in Biology with a subplan in Zoology at California State Polytechnic University Pomona. She is a member and mentor of the Science Educational Enhancement Services (SEES) program that prepares students for college and professional careers. While working as a laboratory technician at the University of Michigan, she realized her passion didn’t lie within research as originally thought, but in advising others through their academic journey. Janel is also a mother to a child that aspires to achieve a career in science. Her greatest accomplishment has been the positive example she has been to her daughter by working past obstacles to pursue and finish her degree.
