Lab Mom

Lab Mom spent 15 years as a Lab Manager in Academia before off-tracking in 2010 to stay at home with her two daughters. She blogs about the juggling act of motherhood and a science career, which encompasses a lot more then the cliche work-life balance.

Helllllll-ooooo Lab Spaces! (I've always wanted to shout that.. Makes me feel like such a rock star!)

Like many of the other newest bloggers over here I too have taken the jump from my personal blog to this new home. (I will confess to being on the fence for a while, but finally gave into the peer pressure.) I recognize so many familiar faces over here, I feel like I need no introduction, since I've been harassing most of you for a while now, but just in case you don't know me, here is my spiel:

I'm LabMom, former Lab Manager in a biological science lab at a large public research university. I have recently relocated to a new city and have temporarily off-ramped from my science career in order to stay at home with my kids. That doesn't stop me from blogging about work-life balance, the role of women in science, scientists as role models for our children, and of course, the importance of being nice to your friendly neighborhood lab manager.

Self Portrait of Yours Truly

I'm thrilled to be a part of this community and look forward to blogging along side the rest of you amazing folks.

Yay, LabMom is here. I guess we still have to gossip like 12 year old school girls about Big Brother over on Blogger.

I love Lab_Mom. It's fine by me if you want to talk about BB (big boobs). It's all good.
Love all your posts.
