Raised in a small Michigan town, M. Montgomery learned early on that she was a bit of an outcast. Instead of trying to blend in with her peers, she embraced what made her different, and dove headfirst into the things she loved. Persistence in her studies earned her a college degree a month before she graduated from high school, and a dedication to music allowed her the freedom to play multiple instruments and use them to fund her way through college. This motivation will enable Montgomery to graduate with two engineering related degrees by 2023. Lab Partners is her first published work.
