My path has been ANYTHING but linear.
.
I started out as a Biology major, but my courses focused on ALL aspects of biology (Vertebrate Zoology, Ecology, ect). My senior research project was focused on the genetic variation of American Ginseng...I did plant population genetics research. I enjoyed it, yes, but I knew it wasn’t what I wanted to continue.
.
I decided to pursue healthcare, and became interested in becoming a Registered Dietitian (RD). I did my Masters in Behavioral and Community Nutrition while also completing the undergraduate coursework to earn my Verification Statement in Dietetics. I completed my Masters thesis that looked at the ability to analyze student academic outcomes as a result of nutrition programs.
.
Along the way, I realized that’s not what I wanted to do. There were a lot of factors that influenced my decision to not become an RD (which may be a whole other post in and of itself, if you’re interested), but ultimately I missed the lab bench. After being questioned by multiple different people in “basic” science about why my path wasn’t linear, and after being turned down because of my pivot, my current advisor took me in. Lucky for me, because now I LOVE what I do.
.
While other people may have a more focused journey, I’m proud of the experiences I have. I may not have studied cancer for years, but I have a strong foundation in translational science. Scientific research exists on a spectrum (from basic science that I do now, all the way up to community and policy research like I did with my Masters), and my ability to think across that spectrum, in my opinion, is useful for collaboration with other researchers.
.
BUT I still struggle with imposter syndrome and inadequacies that I have to work toward constantly, but that challenge what I know and how I can connect what I’ve learned along the way.
.
Anyway, the moral of this is that your story makes you who you are, and works in your advantage. You may have stayed on the straight and narrow path, or you may have experimented, or you may still not know what you want to do, and THAT’S OKAY. The season you are in now is preparing you for a new season of life🌱

Smore inspirational posters are created to be every child’s personal cheerleader. To give them the courage, hope, and motivation they need to work harder and believe in themselves. This month’s poster celebrates the Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Gertrude Elion (1918-1999). As a young girl, she had an “insatiable thirst for knowledge” and loved learning about everything. But she faced many obstacles in her path to get an education. When it was time for college, she was told: “women didn’t go into chemistry”. But she saw no reason why she couldn’t. With her passion, hard work and fierce determination, Gertrude went on to develop many lifesaving drugs to treat leukemia, malaria, and herpes.
Inspire a kid in your life with this Gertrude Elion poster. Available for FREE download in the Smore shop. #stem #stemgirls #chemistry #womeninstem #womeninscience #science #nobelprize #inspiration

It’s big data Tuesday! Okay, I just came up with that, but still. I’m prefacing this with a photo of these succulents I found in Venice because I feel like they totally fit the topic visually. And they’re so beautiful!😊 No one, at least in product and tech, likes to be a data bitch* so what tools do you use to handle data visualization? In the past I’ve used HighCharts, Google Charts and Tableau. I want to branch out and try some new tools so drop some suggestions! *my favorite phrase, like ever 👩‍💻

I’ve been told many times by many different people (i.e., advisors, faculty members, fellow grad students, and colleagues) that “grad students don’t get to have fun,” “grad students should live in the lab,” and “you’ll have time for a life AFTER grad school.” Well, you know what, I call bullshit.

If you live and breathe academia you’re not living a full life and, honestly, you probably haven’t taken a deep breath in years. I know this because I was consumed by the demands of academic life for the better part of a decade, and the only thing I had to show for it was a 12-page C.V.

Let yourself be the complex, healthy, full, multifaceted person you are -- you aren’t just an academic and you aren’t defined by your academic achievements. You’re a living, breathing, beautiful human being. You are a real person with a whole host of desires and facets of your complex personhood that exist and flourish well outside of the halls of your department. So let yourself embrace all of the components of your life, both academic and otherwise.

Your worth is NOT measured by your productivity! You are so much more than your academic accomplishments and the time you spend in the confines of your lab. Plus, the time you spend on yourself outside of academia will only ever improve the quality of your work, so it is a win-win.

I received a very important piece of advice recently, and I think many of you would benefit from it, too – you don’t want to be a part of a department/lab that is just looking for lifeless, production-focused workhorse. You want to work in an environment that values not only successful academics but also healthy, happy human beings.

So, give yourself a break. Let loose a little. Let yourself have fun. Let yourself take time off. Let yourself live in the “real world” sometimes, too.

Your work can wait, and mine can, too. So here is a picture of me in a rare moment where I’m taking my own advice and having a little fun.

In just two weeks I’ll be meeting with a small group of ambitious women to help them simplify their business, stand out from the competition, attract high end clients AND command higher prices.
.
Held LIVE in downtown Toronto (and via our exclusive livestream), The Preeminence Strategy is a hands-on workshop that will help you:
.
- Break down the psychology of high end clients so you are clear on what you must DEMONSTRATE in order to have them buy from you.
.
- Pinpoint the top 3 MESSAGE pillars you MUST focus on in your marketing in order to gain respect and solidify your reputation as THE top tier expert in your industry.
.
- Single out the ONE power move you could make to generate more revenue – with fewer headaches – in your business this month.
.
Preeminence is a focused, simplified strategy to position your business in a category of ONE. And in case you’re wondering, it can work for anyone. Right now, I’m coaching a number of women entrepreneurs to simplify their businesses and increase revenues with preeminence.
.
Take my client Jordin. She increased revenues by $200K and reduced her workload by 20% by implementing this strategy in her health business last year.
.
So let’s talk about how you and I can work together face to face to simplify your business, stand out from the competition, and easily command higher prices.
.
We still have a few in-person and online tickets available. Go to the link in my bio to learn more.

#archaeology31 Day 3: Who am I? Hello! This is the first and only picture of me on this feed. I've resisted so far, despite being inspired by #scientistswhoselfie 💪👍✊. I'm a graduate student, an archaeologist, an academic parent and my passions are public archaeology, creative writing, and mental health organizing and self-advocacy. Pictured: me holding out a shovelfull of soil from the test pit visible in the background - Labrador, 2013 #archaeology #phdlife #actuallyautistic #actuallyADHD #womeninscience #scicomm

Looking to the future.

I've got a lot on my mind at the moment about #zerowaste and #climatechange 🏝️
I study climate change every day in school and I'm making it my life's work to properly educate the public on the matter and what we need to do. Education plays a large role on every level.
❄️
There are parts of the zero waste community I am moving away from. I see well intentioned humans using non-science and spreading misinformation. Vinegar does not disinfect, as much as you want it to (just one example). There's a lot of privilege in the zero waste community that isn't always acknowledged and some backwards concepts such as driving everywhere just to find unpackaged goods and not considering the carbon footprint of all cumulative actions.
🌳
I know I keep talking about this blog I want to launch, but you might have missed that first bit where I mentioned school. So I'm going to post a little more on this account until I have enough content ready. I want to do it right and give out facts and not opinions or judgement on how you live your life. In the meantime, there are still wonderful and honest people in the zero waste community you can find information and inspiration from, such as @wastefreephd @greenindyblog @robjgreenfield @bezerowastegirl @zerowastechef 🌎
My word of the year is #EDUCATION and I hope to break down all the facts on climate change and help more humans make positive changes for the earth. Reducing your carbon footprint is so much more than the trash you make. The most important thing to remember is to live mindfully and the rest will follow. Stay curious, stay kind, and stay informed.

Plankton provide the single largest source of oxygen and carbon sequestration on this planet all while nourishing the largest mammal on Earth, the blue whale 🐋 . With the rise in temperature and acidity in the ocean an urgent question emerges; how will the environmental changes affect the plankton’s ability to maintain these global processes and provide the foundation of the world’s food web? 🐋
Join us in our conversation with Dr. Malinda Sutor, from the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences in the College of Coast & Environment, as we cover a range of topics including the challenges of quantifying zooplankton to her research into this puzzling question to the importance of quantifying these organisms from a national defense perspective.

We got a new spectrophotometer! This fancy machine shines light through samples to understand the chemistry of those samples.
.
The samples absorb some of the light (based on their chemistry) and the detector (on the back side of the sample) detects the light that makes it through.Then we can understand the chemistry.
