About Tiera Fletcher
Born and raised in a small town near Atlanta, Georgia, Tiera Fletcher (Guinn) has had a passion for aerospace engineering since the tender age of eleven. Before then, she had aspirations of being a scientist, inventor, architect, mathematician, and many other careers within the field of STEM. It was not until she became introduced to the field of aerospace engineering that she realized her true dream. At 22, Tiera is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s of Science in Aerospace Engineering and currently serves as a Structural Analysis Engineer at The Boeing Company in Huntsville, AL where she's specifically working on NASA’s Space Launch System (the rocket NASA plans to send to Mars). She has a strong interest in helping upcoming generations to realize and achieve their dreams. Tiera enjoys speaking to youth to not only encourage them to become more involved in STEM, but to reach their goals in any field they wish to pursue.
