So a lot has happen over the last couple of months leading to an amalgamation of excitement, joy, depression, and an assortment of other emotions. I no longer live in Louisiana! My partner, Fred, got an awesome job at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and I moved up with him to Cape Cod in early July.… Continue reading I Moved, Y’all
It’s beyond frustrating that there is still an overwhelming denial of the gender wage gap.
