Engineering science alum working for NASA credits ‘Rosie the Riveter’ grandmother

Amanda Stubblefield (ES’97) never believed women couldn’t do any job they wanted — a value she learned from her grandmother, a real-life “Rosie the Riveter.”

After double-majoring in Engineering Science and Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University, Stubblefield went to work for NASA. Her current job is to help connect cargo vehicles to the International Space Station. Her grandmother, Elsie Ledbetter, built airplanes during World War II.

Read more about the two women — and perhaps the most interesting phone call Stubblefield has ever taken during dinner — in this article by Jessica Bliss.
