Please join us on April 6th for a networking happy hour and meet AWIS GCH Career Development Chair: Varsha Pednekar
Varsha Pednekar is a Ph.D. trained scientist with a diverse technical background spanning chemistry to cancer biology. She recently switched career paths and now works as a Patent Agent with one of the top IP firms within the United States. In her non-scientist role she is still required to think and act like a scientist. Science has always motivated her, and she believes “once a scientist always a scientist”.
Varsha is a strong advocate of the mentoring process and believes all career paths must be nurtured via proper mentoring channels. She is looking forward to giving back to the scientific community via her leadership position as the career development chair.
Varsha strikes a perfect work-life balance and when not working she is spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys cooking and finds it therapeutic.
