I believe that professional development activities are an essential component of any career in the sciences.  Having been a faculty member, principal investigator, facility director, and now as a research administrator, I have experienced academic research science through a wide variety of perspectives.  I have always enjoyed teaching, mentorship, and communication through media including writing, presentations, workshops, podcasts, and webinars.  Working with hfp Consulting is a way that I can share my experiences, learn and grow myself, and help others realize their career goals in ways that combine all of these different types of activities
