California-based STEM-education startup GoldieBlox has added a former DreamWorks Animation and American Girl Co. executive to its team as it shifts its focus away from toy manufacturing and into entertainment and media licensing.

Shawn Dennis has joined the company as its president where she will be in charge of expanding revenue, product, entertainment, licensing and strategic partnerships. She will continue to sit on the company’s board of directors where she has served since 2016.
