I am a chemist for the government of Canada. During my short career in Chemistry, I did work of art authentication, worked in an emergency center to assist firefighters during dangerous goods spilled in transport and I am now writing regulations for the safe transport of dangerous goods in Canada.

Chemistry is with me everywhere I go and whatever I do. It is my best friend!
