My fondest career memory or proudest moment:
While doing some consulting work in our Ho Chi Minh office, I gave a sequence stratigraphy lecture at a local university on a Sunday morning! I loved seeing budding earth scientists so enthused about the subject that they wanted to spend their Sunday morning discussing eustasy and accommodation. Their hunger for knowledge was inspiring!
My inspiration and motivation come from:
My supportive husband and crazily curious 3 year old daughter
