a Physics PhD, I was originally a researcher, evaluating nuclear data.
After a five-year carer break as the primary caregiver for my five
children, I was having difficulty returning to research work. Thanks to a
three-year Daphne Jackson Fellowship, I was able to research and
retrain in Medical Physics, and now enjoy a related but new career.
Daphne Jackson is a UK program that returns professionals in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Technology to their careers after at least a 2 year break, through flexible, part-time, paid fellowships that include research and retraining." www.DaphneJackson.org

Do you have a relauncher success story of your own to share with us and the rest of the relauncher community?
Sharing your inevitable success is a great way to give back as your story will inspire and motivate other relaunchers, especially if your story is not the typical story that is told.
It is our hope that all relaunchers are able to see themselves reflected in relauncher success stories as we all know how important representation is. We respectfully ask you to share only the details of your relaunch you are comfortable sharing, but to indeed share your story with us so we can be sure to document and feature a more diverse population of relauncher experiences, background and identities.
