My name is Jennie and I started this blog because in the final year of my microbiology degree I was let loose in a proper lab amongst other scary things. The original site was called Muddled Student, but when I graduated from my Science Communication Masters I rebranded to In My Stride as a reminder to take new experiences and opportunities with enthusiasm. This virtual notepad now gives me a place to write about issues that are important to me and develop my communication skills. 

I believe thorough evaluation practices, audience relevance and empathy are key factors to any successful communication no matter what the subject. Using a combination of marketing and science communication practices, I am confident that I can create content or provide meaningful contributions for any project.

I don’t just write on this blog; since 2016 I have been involved with the Early Career Scientist Committee in the Society for Applied Micrbiology and written many blogs, magazine articles and podcasts for them.
