Biography
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. Tiera graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Aerospace Engineering in June 2017. During her time at MIT, she was also a part-time Rocket Structural Design and Analysis Engineer at The Boeing Company, specifically working on NASA’s Space Launch System. Currently, TIera is a full-time employee of The Boeing Company working to build NASA's Space Launch System in New Orleans, LA. 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.
