How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I am looking to contribute to the advancement of women in the biological and field sciences. I am also looking to transfer my skills to a slightly different career path, and would appreciate learning from other women in our community.
I am a mother of 2 teens and negotiated the daycare, schooling, and family management throughout all stages of their growth while working in an office and from home. I believe I can help women brainstorm innovative ways to keep working if they desire while they raise a family.
