I am Shavondra Leak, a seasoned STEM/laboratory specialist with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and a Minor in Business from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, obtained in August 2002. My academic journey has been shaped by a relentless pursuit of scientific excellence and a profound commitment to the life sciences.
Building upon this foundation, I furthered my education and earned a Master of Science in Biotechnology from Morehouse School of Medicine in December 2022. This extensive academic background reflects my dedication to expanding my expertise and staying at the forefront of innovative research in the STEM field.
My professional path is driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a passion for continuous growth. I am currently poised at the threshold of a new chapter, aiming to delve deeper into the realms of biotechnology through a transformative journey in the Biotechnology Graduate Program. Here, I seek to acquire new skills, embrace cutting-edge research methodologies, and lay the groundwork for effective leadership in this dynamic field.
My diverse experiences and unwavering commitment to scientific progress position me as a catalyst for innovation within the biotechnology landscape. I am eager to contribute meaningfully, driving advancements and making a tangible impact through my expertise and dedication to the STEM field.
My passion for promoting STEM education and empowering minority females led me to volunteer with Youth Outreach in STEM in Knoxville, TN. Through weekly engagements, mentorship opportunities, and tailored assignments, I strived to broaden access to STEM education, fostering academic growth and empowerment among inner-city school students.
During my tenure with Girl Talk, Inc. in Knoxville, TN, I actively contributed to the organization's mission of empowering young girls. From coordinating transportation logistics to facilitating impactful sessions at annual retreats focusing on self-esteem, personal worth, and college preparation, I aimed to inspire and guide young minds toward their goals.
As Lead Biotechnology Expert Specialist at PiperEdutainments LLC, I instructed the scholars in the DNA Design Genes class within the Summer Biotechnology Camp, catering to high school students. My role was pivotal in educating and guiding students through the intricate elements of DNA structure, replication processes, and more.
These experiences have shaped my belief in the transformative power of education and community involvement. I remain committed to leveraging my skills and passion to drive positive change and uplift future generations.
