Houston SCH pic from MichaelLibby Norcross works at an educational space simulator called the Challenger Learning Center, where she wears a flight suit and encourages kids in science and reaching for the future. In her spare time she travels on geeky vacations, takes classes toward another college degree, doodles inspirational posters, and generally spends her time wondering how in the world she gets to have all the experiences she does.
