I'm Melissa. Your host and Certified Career and Life Coach. I spent 20 years in Corporate America, the last 10 leading Talent & Development in pharma/biotech. I am here to help you create a career you love and overcome any workplace challenge. You can wake up happy instead of filled with dread, know you're applying your skills and passion, and achieve more than you think is possible.
I can show you how.


In this episode, Melissa interviews Ellen Lawrence, Director of Analytical Development with Emergent BioSolutions.  Listen in to this transparent and insightful conversation about the realities of growing your career, as a woman, and also a member of the LGBTQ+ community in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.

Ellen's journey from entry level scientist to senior leader - the pivots she made in her career and educational development journey
Challenges she experienced working her way to the top
A decision she wishes she wouldn't have made and the advice she would give to any woman looking to grow their career
How her management style has changed and what she thinks made a difference in her success

And so much more.
