Adjusting "Plans" to Accommodate Cool Research and Leadership Opportunities
From Texas to Arkansas, Tennessee, Florida and back, Dr. McKenzie has changed zip codes and research many times in the last 13 years. In this talk, she will discuss her scientific journey, as well as the path she has traveled to become the next Chair of the Nashville Section of the American Chemical Society. Dr. McKenzie will also discuss the newly formed Younger Chemists Committee of the Nashville ACS, and how its members can use the YCC as a resource and springboard to further involvement and leadership opportunities.
