Hi! My name is Alejandra and I am a Geoscientist at an oil and gas company. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico which I’m pretty sure had *some* influence into me becoming a lady geo. Growing up I always loved being outside whether that was the beach or the mountains or just my … Continue reading Meet our new guest contributor: BreakerOfGlassCeilings!
And things to check out while you're waiting Fun thing I discovered while in the field immediately after GSA: WordPress won't let me upload photos from my phone. So this whole post was written last week but couldn't be posted until just now 😦 I'm finally home though, so expect a bunch of catch-up posts … Continue reading Delay of the LadyGeo
Continuing on this topic of conferencing, I returned late last week from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) annual meeting in San Antonio, TX.

They hosted a shortcourse this year and my only complaint is that I wish I had taken this course … Continue reading Day i

Below is a post about Day i, my day with the Illuminati, and I'm hoping to get out a post about Day ii--my … Continue reading GSA, Days i and ii
'Twas the week before GSA and all through the halls, the geos panicking and sighing out loud. "My poster's not done!" "The talk is which day?!" "Oh crap, I said I'd do that, but there's time-wise no way!" If you're not a conference-attending-type person, think of GSA as sort of a big geology jamboree. It's … Continue reading GSA Ramp Up
It's been a hectic couple months for everyone, and--as I'm sure you know--it's really easy to fall out of the habit of writing. Sorry, friends. But! A new semester has started, three of the LadyGeos are back in the same state (well, I guess technically @mackenziecremeans isn't in Kansas, but close enough), @sarahlcmorton and I … Continue reading Aaaaand We’re Back!
