Science March 2017

Science March 2017


Posted By on Apr 22, 2017

Along with many other Americans, I peacefully and legally took to the streets on Saturday, April 22 to make a public call for the support of science. Below is my planned speech, to be given in Springfield, MO. I must start this by saying I am here as an individual. My words are my own. I represent no company, no government, and no sponsor. I am here speaking my mind, and my opinions. I am here to speak my truth. It’s Earth day....

Resist; Persist.


Posted By on Feb 11, 2017

It’s been 20 days since the Women’s March on DC (and the World). Resistance is not futile, but persistence is hard. Earlier this week I shut down Twitter while trying to get some work done.

Struggling for Work-Life Balance


Posted By on Nov 28, 2015

Of all the questions people can ask, I never expected, “How do you get it all done?” to be the most common.
