I am grateful for the opportunity to have been surrounded and educated by hundreds of physicians, scientists, and other professionals and like-minded students in my field. 👩🏾‍⚕️👩🏾‍🔬 #ABRCMS2017 #blackandstem insta topsy.oneGetting down to business at @usfws while the photographer yells at me to get the banana peel out of the money shot 🍌.

"#SACNAS2017 was a unique conference experience for me. In every other meeting that I attend I am one of the very few black people around. Even as I am in my second decade of regularly attending scientific conferences, the uneasy feeling that I get for being one of few members of underrepresented minority groups never goes away. Unfortunately, the settings and sometimes attendees also keep reminding you that you are different than most people. But, at #SACNAS I was overjoyed, and even got emotional multiple times. The feeling of being surrounded by so many people that look like me in one meeting is still hard to put in words. One of the most incredible experiences for me was attending the POW WOW. Witnessing the joy and pride attendees were feeling by being able to bring our whole selves to celebrate and showcase our science was glorious. The support and mentoring that early career scientists from URM groups were receiving throughout the meeting was also incredible. Thank you for the experience." #BLACKandSTEM

I’m busy crafting a life that will allow me to enjoy and build my marriage other than just in the evenings and on weekends. Basically I want to see and be with you when I want to see and be with you 💁🏾‍♀️
.
Future husband, hope you’re doing the same 💁🏽‍♂️ insta topsy.oneGood morning, Good People! 🌍♥️
Had a healing vibe with God this morning.
Spirituality is the core of my life & my
source of clarity & positive energy.

I hope you receive the clarity, empowerment, courage, resilience & strength to live your Divine purpose, on a daily basis.

Living truthfully requires you to look at your life & seek healing in the areas that limit your growth & inspiration. Being a better you is a process, be kinder to your self & judge your self & others less. We all are under construction in some area of our life.

Wishing you the best always. May you make this planet better, by first being a better you. YesterdayHave vision. Be demanding."

IIt’s never too late to discover your passion and live the life you want. .
I had so much fun yesterday discussing Design Thinking and how to use it to discover new passions for personal development and career transition or progression. Someone emailed a great question concerning whether they should go the PsyD or MD route. Check out what I told them. And can I be honest with ya’ll? I get sooo nervous doing lives lol. 🙈  I’ve presented in front of hundreds of people at conferences and presenting my research so you would think that it would be easy to just sit and talk in front of the phone just looking at myself. But it’s not lol. .
If you were not able to make it, the live should still be up until 7 pm EST tonight. And you can read the blog to discover how I managed my transition to STEM. Link in bio. insta topsy.oneBetty Harris (1940-). As we at WiSE experienced firsthand teaching neuroscience to Girl Scouts last summer, sharing the joys of science with children can be an immensely rewarding experience for the teachers and an exciting, even inspirational, experience for the participants. Thanks to this week’s WiSE Wednesday honoree, Girl Scouts across the US are being introduced to chemistry at a young age and earning a merit badge in the process.

Betty Harris was born in 1940 in Louisiana. After earning an BS in chemistry from Southern University and MS in chemistry from Atlanta University, she taught chemistry and math for ten years before continuing her own graduate studies. She earned a PhD in chemistry from the University of New Mexico, then worked as a research chemist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. While there, she performed diverse hazardous material research, developing methods to de-contaminate hazardous waste sites, synthesize safer explosives, and detect trace amounts of explosives (she received a patent for a test used at crime scenes). Having spent time in academia and governmental research, she next set her sights on industry, becoming chief of chemical technology for Solar Turbine Incorporated (STI). At STI she managed research on a different type of investigation – the case of the corroding gas turbine engines – the culprits turned out to be sulfuric acid & soot). She then returned to government service, finishing her career with eleven years as a certified document review at the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Classification, where she helped determine what DOE information should be classified and what could be released. 
Harris has been a strong advocate for comprehensive STEM education, and thanks to her work with the Girl Scouts, girls are learning first-hand that chemistry is fun and exciting, not boring or scary!

#womeninSTEM #womeninscience #girlscouts #blackandstem insta topsy.oneI love this! #WomenPathologistsForTheWin #WomenInSTEM #BlackAndSTEM insta topsy.oneIThe way I feel inside when a woman tells me she wants to figure out how to leverage her talents and strengths to craft a career and life she enjoys. 😆 lol
.
But seriously, I could talk about this topic all day. 
I’m going live tonight at 7pm EST on IG. I’ll be discussing how to use Design Thinking to map out your transition - whether its personal or career related. Bring your questions or message me if there is something in particular you want to discuss!
