Not all career paths are the same, and this can be particularly true for mothers. Angela Wilson joins Anna and Kate from STEMM Global to discuss how being a mother has shaped her journey in STEMM. They talk about the different barriers to women in STEMM and other fields, as well as how becoming a mother helped inspire and renew Angela’s scientific career!
Angela Wilson is the founder of Baby Smiles Club, and a mother to a young son. Angela studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University before moving away from science to practise law. Before her son was born, she was interested in learning more about how babies sleep. This drew her back to her STEMM background and lead to the creation of her company. She is now a certified child sleep consultant.
