What is the best thing you are blessed with to do your job?
Jennifer, I have a lot of questions but is hard to begin a BioMedical and taking care of your daughter all at the same time. But what is the best thing you are blessed with to do your job? Do you like doing your job with helping others? How do you feel when you help others out that have a medical problem with their arm or leg?

    Dear Samantha,  

    Thank you for you question.  Balancing family and a job is always a challenge no matter what you choose.  However, it is also very rewarding.  There is no one recipe or single piece of advice on how to manage family and a job as a biomedical engineer as it is a very personal choice and balance but it is very important to have a great network of support!  

    All the best, JE
