Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

Today is Ada Lovelace day-- a day to celebrate women in science and tech.  At the Ada Lovelace web page, I pledged to write about a kick-ass woman in science.  I was given Rae McQuade to blog about.

Rae McQuade has bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Chemistry and did graduate work in Energy Economics. She is now the President for the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB). She has led many initiatives for energy use reform. In March 2000, Rae was awarded the Appreciation Service Award by the  Secretary of Energy for her work in creating an efficacious energy standards organization.
