Hi, I'm Francine
Pronouns: she, her, hers | 3 Emojis that describe me: 🌍❄🌄
What I love about being a Career Coach: Supporting Postdocs in articulating their many advanced technical and nontechnical skills, and in confidently preparing for their professional transition. I draw on many years of experience, especially in industry, to support Postdocs in considering and preparing for varied career paths.

I thought I'd be a linguist/professor, but have instead had completely different valuable and exciting professional experiences. It’s more about 'adventure' than ‘stability’ out there!
