At OvaScience, we are dedicated to empowering fertility patients, and our bloggers usually focus their posts on topics aligned with that mission. We recognize that many fertility patients are also juggling additional personal and professional goals while on their fertility journey. While the topics of professional development and leadership may seem like a departure for Fertility Insights, we believe that empowering women to make the best decisions for themselves — whether in their health or in their careers — is extremely important.
Recently, I had the pleasure of serving as the keynote speaker for Women in Bio (WIB) in Boston. WIB is an organization committed to promoting the careers and leadership of women in the life sciences. The purpose of my presentation was to share my path and the personal and professional lessons I’ve learned that have empowered me to make better decisions in my life and work. My hope is that in sharing this, it might help others, too.
