The Philadelphia Education Fund welcomes Britney Davis as the STEM Project Manager. Britney joined the PEF team on June 16th. As the STEM Project Manager, Britney is responsible for organizing “Explore STEM Philly/Chester”— a PEF program that trains STEM professionals, who will then interface with high school students. Britney will oversee and assist with a diverse portfolio of STEM education programs, projects, and initiatives. In addition, Britney will interface with and develop crucial relationships with educators, students, community members, business partners, and funders.
Britney Davis developed her passion for being a servant leader – and for making the world a better place – through twelve years of Girl Scouting in her hometown of Philadelphia. As a very curious young woman, she participated in the local Science in the Summer program, to learn more about the world around her. In 2015, Britney graduated from Villanova University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, and with minors in Business and Engineering Entrepreneurship.
After graduation, Britney worked with Precision Castparts Corp. (PCC) within their Management Development Program in Southern California and Henderson, NV – both in Engineering and Supervisory roles. In 2017, Britney joined the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada as the inaugural STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Director, where she developed, designed and executed engaging programming for girls ages 5-18. During her time at Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, Britney developed 30 new community partnerships, launched the STEAM Career Conference, and managed grant-funding.
