"The best part of my job is the people I get to work with. I love what I do, but it's made better by working with fantastic people; not just the people in my lab but everyone I encounter throughout the day. I love working in this building full of exceptional people. I'm inspired by the great women I get to work with at the NRC, from in the lab to management and all the levels in between. I look at the achievements these women accomplish and it makes me strive to do my best in everything I undertake, and to push myself to take on new challenges."
