How Post-PhD Started:

When I left academia, I wanted to create a free resource of advice, information, and resources for graduate students, academics, and especially, PhDs who left academia.  I decided to share my story of why I left, it immediately went viral with over 150,000 hits. 

I believe in the power education and the tremendous importance of higher education. We have to collectively unite against current trends and funding re-directions.
