Despite being an art major, Simone was raised to appreciate the wonder and mystery of space. Some of her earliest memories include being taken to her dad's JPL functions, where people sang songs they made up about the moons of Jupiter. With this basis in normalcy, she enthusiastically joins The Planetary Society to support its mission.
Simone has extensive experience in the nonprofit sector in fundraising and executive assistance. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her wife and two dogs.
