Rocket Scientist Jacqueline L. Mims, PMP, CPO, LSS GB
The movie Hidden Figures highlights the historical women of color whose meticulous calculations helped the U.S. catch up in the “space race” and send John Glenn into orbit around Earth. But NASA had many such “hidden figures,” and one of the most notable is Engineer and former Rocket Scientist Jacqueline Mims, who was the first African-American civil servant to be certified as a spacecraft ground controller for NASA- Goddard Space Flight Center’s unmanned spacecraft. Mims has also received numerous awards for her Engineering achievements, including the prestigious Trumpet Award and the Government Leadership Award by US Black Engineer. She was named Most Promising Engineer in Government at the Black Engineer of the Year Awards and one of the Top Ten Minority Women in Science and Engineering by the National Technical Association. Mims decided to accept another challenge by adding an Entrepreneur to her list of accomplishments. Mims is CEO and Founder of My Global STEM Academy, a not for profit in Wake County, North Carolina.
The mission of My Global STEM Academy is to equip and empower the next generation of STEM leaders around the world to develop and maintain a passion for STEM. Mims is also a highly sought after Award-Winning International Speaker, Author, Mastermind Trainer, and STEM & Women’s Advocate. She has traveled to Guyana and Kenya empowering women and youth to pursue STEM and issuing a call to action for all to dream big and to be willing to perform the work necessary to bring dreams into reality.

Now, she specializes in finding personalized holistic solutions for busy women who are burning themselves out doing everything for everyone else and merely surviving on caffeine and willpower. Whether it’s to lose 20+ pounds, gain more energy and focus, or just plain sleep through the night, Dr. Lovelle and the Premiere Wellness team will help you discover your ONE, signature way of living so that you can experience the healthy, long, and joyful life you want and deserve.
