Title: Navigating a Career Path, a Case Study
Abstract: What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a question that many of us are asked from a young age. We start with dreams of being a ballerina or fireman but seldom stay on this path. This talk is to share my experience of young aspirations, educational decisions, and choices that ultimately led to a career that is immensely fulfilling. I will also share some insight into my current role and some of the projects you might work on in a medical device company. As is likely clear, I will not be presenting an industrial problem, but instead the problem that we all face and navigate. My hope is that sharing my experience can provide some tools to help you get closer to the answer of the question that many of us are still asking ourselves: 'What do I want to be when I grow up?'
