Mike and Elaine have the pleasure to talk to Julie Laurin, an artist, a successful entrepreneur, a school drop out, a science communicator, and most importantly, a curious learner with a talent for sharing her enthusiasm. Julie Laurin cannot be put in a box and it has been a delight to understand her motivation, talk about how anyone can get into science, how communicating with scientist is not as difficult as you think and how sometimes, going to post-secondary school is overrated.
