Have you ever found yourself wondering what turn your career would have taken, if you had accepted one or the other opportunity that presented itself but was totally unrelated to your job at the time? Join our upcoming Science Wire, where we will be hearing from these three awesome speakers who have all taken weird career turns throughout their life:
Marcie Colledge is cofounder of Yellow Scope, a Portland company that makes science kits that take girls seriously. She has a PhD in neuroscience and in her previous life before starting Yellow Scope she worked in academic research for over 15 years, including running her own research lab. After taking a hiatus from the lab bench when her two daughters were young, she started volunteering at their elementary school. It was here she met Kelly McCollum, another scientist-mom. Marcie and Kelly worked together as volunteers for seven years leading STEM programs at the school. Yellow Scope grew out of their shared a passion for science, education, and closing the gender gap in STEM!
Mike Nelson has worked in the coffee industry as a barista, consultant, roaster, trainer, and company co-owner with various specialty coffee companies in the US and abroad. He combined his love of scientific research and coffee by focusing his graduate research on climate change and coffee, and holds an MSc in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science and an MSc in Geography. He is co-founder of Junior’s Roasted Coffee, and oversees the company’s green coffee buying, roasting, and wholesale training. In April 2017 Mike and his business partners opened Guilder, a cafe and bar in Northeast Portland that also serves as the roastery for Junior’s Roasted Coffee.
Rather than having a career endpoint that was clear from the beginning, Jennifer Seamans sees her vocational process as iterative, continually updating with changing local conditions and information. Over the last two decades she has engaged her experience and expertise in math, sociology, science education and assessment, systems and pattern language, and environmental science project management — with an eye toward changing who is engaged in science/STEM, how it is done, and who benefits. Jen is halfway through the MPH program in biostatistics at OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, with interests in social and environmental determinants of health, public health education, and measuring health outcomes related to public policy.
Join us for an evening of fun and inspiration. We will provide some refreshments, drinks and more substantial food will be available for purchase at the bar.
Doors open at 5:30pm.
This event is free, registration is required. Please register here.
All are welcome!

This Caturra, Catuai, and Bourbon coffee grows between 1300 and 1800 meters above sea level (masl; 4265ft to 5905ft), and is processed (washed) on site.

By Hope & By Cloak by Rocky Darensbourg aka Rochelle Koivunen
Opening reception will be from 4-8 pm on July 5th, 2017
Performance At 7pm!
This group of watercolor paintings, titled "By Hope & By Cloak," and new original songs speak to the juncture of surviving and thriving and the ways that our communal experience creates resilience, and they aspire to lift your spirits.
The originals and life-size archival reproductions are for sale by inquiry, if you happen to be so inspired, and smaller archival prints are available at: www.etsy.com/shop/Rorotoyou
BY HOPE & BY CLOAK
The Great Turning.
The Lifting of the Veil.
The Shifting of the Magnetic Poles...
Many names for this prophesied time as we pass through the portal of chaos. Somehow, we will make it. With each other. Or at least the Earth will, in some form. By Hope and By Cloak.
Rocky Darensbourg (AKA Rochelle Koivunen) grew up in the country outside of Portland with trees and a deep hole in the earth as forts and safe havens. As an adult nature is still the refuge of choice, but during rainy winters and long nights art does the trick. With an eye on the ways that we humans experience each other and the world, this work hopes to bring levity to our shared experience.
A great thanks to those of the larger human family whose influences mark my early formative years: Teachers Judy Vogland-Dayton, Gail Young, Shelley Cole, Deanna Hunt, and Laura Ross-Paul; Writers and Illustrators Maurice Sendak, Tove Jansson, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Dr. Seuss, Astrid Lindgren, Jamake Highwater, Louise Fitzhugh; performers and musicians Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, Ramblin’ Rod Anders, Ben Matlock, The Beatles, The Talking Heads, Paul Simon, Patty Loveless, John Denver, Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul, Michael Jackson, Yip Harburg, Walt Disney, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews.
"Rochelle Koivunen's drawings portray a kinder, gentler post-apocalyptic world. Instead of Mad Max scavengers, Koivunen's survivors have learned their lesson and decided to band together and respect the earth. Through the artist's sheer conviction and carry-through, she rescues this premise from preciousness, building a world where humans, animals, and indeterminate in-betweeners coexist peacefully with Gaia herself, joined together by tentacles and squishy viscera. It's an inventive vision worth checking out." - R. Speer
