A Message From Our Chapter Liaison

I serve as the Georgia Bio (GaBio) academic liaison for Augusta University. I am also part of the The Emerging Leaders Network (ELN), a division of GaBio, devoted to promoting networking between emerging and established professionals within the Georgia Life Sciences Community. ELN provides opportunities for developing industry contacts, mentoring, and career enhancement. Its mission is to serve all life sciences professionals – current and future – who seek to develop professional networks and contacts in Georgia. 

Personally, my involvement with ELN and GABio has been very enriching and has provided me with outstanding career and professional development opportunities.  For example, I had the opportunity to connect with other established professionals and engage in learning opportunities through their programs. The “Small dinner series” provided me with the chance to interact closely with an industry personnel to network and gain insight into their career and career paths. Georgia Bio’s annual career fair was instrumental in expanding my network of industry experts and broadened my knowledge on careers outside academia. Workshops including the career development series focused on preparing students for industry careers through rigorous training on resume writing, gaining contacts and preparing for interviews were very relevant and beneficial.

I absolutely enjoy my association with GaBio and ELN and I highly encourage you,to join the organization to connect, engage and emerge into the leaders of the future.
