Statement of interest

My first experience with the ASBMB was the 2014 Interactive Mentoring Activities for Grantsmanship Enhancement, or IMAGE, grant writing workshop, a transformational experience that set the stage for my independent career. Since that time, I have continually sought opportunities to give back to the ASBMB community.

My largest contribution has been through service on the ASBMB Public Affairs Advisory Committee, or PAAC. During my tenure on the PAAC, we have renewed focus on advocacy for the next generation of scientists, the diverse range of institution types that employ ASBMB members and advocacy to a broader coalition of funders, including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy and Food and Drug Administration. PAAC efforts in this time have increased our advocacy to funders and legislators and developed the Advocacy Training Program.

I have also served our fellow ASBMB members at the annual meeting during mentoring sessions, as an Undergraduate Poster Competition judge, and throughout the year as a mentor within the ASBMB IMAGE grant writing workshop and mentorship program.

As my time on the PAAC comes to a close, I am eager for additional opportunities to serve the ASBMB community and advocate for the needs of ASBMB members. I view serving on the ASBMB Council as an outstanding opportunity to further serve the ASBMB community and to advocate for the needs of ASBMB members.

The ASBMB has been a tremendous positive force and influence in my career. I look forward to continuing my service to the ASBMB community through efforts that advance the interests of all ASBMB members.
