About me

Hi!  My name is Jaime and I am a mom of three and PhD candidate.  I started my PhD in 2014 when I already had one child and was pregnant with my second.  In the first two years of my PhD, I had two additional children and published a first author paper.  Before I enrolled in my PhD program, I heard plenty about the negatives of having a child and attending graduate school.  Since I started my journey in academia, I have come to realize that being a parent can be an advantage.
