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 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.

In the interest of furthering my experience and expandng my career, I am very open to writing projects or consultation work from other organisations and individuals, especially research scientists looking to find and connect with an audience. Please visit my contact page for more information on my skills and passions when it comes to communications.
