Just the other day, I was delivering a workshop on effective teams - and especially, being a good team member - and I touched on effective tools for managing yourself. The one I advocate most strongly is the good old-fashioned notebook for hand-writing, well, notes. For more than 20 years, I've used a 9 1/4 x 7 1/4 ruled notebook for recording to-do lists, phone calls, meetings, conversations, thoughts and plans. More importantly, my notebooks are my archive of a professional life, proving invaluable time and again as a reminder and record keeper.

My career as a research project manager is rewarding, dynamic, challenging, and fun. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience in communication, organization, and common sense approaches in research management and leadership, and to enabling others to learn and grow in this exciting career.
