Stephanie’s leadership will be invaluable as we continue to inspire and support women in this innovative field.”

Additionally, she founded the San Antonio chapter of Women in Robotics, further demonstrating her commitment to the advancement of women in the robotics sector. “I am deeply honored to join the board of such an impactful organization,” said Garcia. “Women in Robotics has been a driving force in empowering women to pursue careers in this exciting and rapidly growing industry.
