"It's hard to talk about who you are and what you do online. I started practicing that in graduate school to feel more connected to the people I met at conferences and visiting writer's series. Now I help people share what they do with the world. It's never too early or too late to get started.

I've been following the amazing professional development happening at GradFUTURES for some time. I am so excited to be a part of it now. Don't hesitate to reach out and say hi!"
