Welcome to the first episode of Making Lemonade, a brand new series of conversations with young entrepreneurs who have overcome obstacles, embraced change, and turned lemons into lemonade.

From NFL cheerleader to biomedical engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur – Dr. Wendy Brown is proof that you truly can do anything you set your mind to!

Wendy was well into college when she reconciled her love of science and her love of cheerleading. Her career change from professional cheerleading to joining the ranks of inspiring women in STEM shows that choosing seemingly disparate career paths should be an empowering choice, and not a roadblock, to pursue your goals. Today, Wendy is the co-founder of a biotech start-up company, Cartilage, Inc, where she and her team are engineering a cartilage implant capable of healing both large and small cartilage injuries (such as hip, knee, and nose) without the limitations of current treatments.

Watch her inspiring episode about overcoming stereotypes and the power of believing in yourself!

“Don’t box yourself in and don’t let other people box you in.” 

-Dr. Wendy Brown
