After multiple pandemic years of interruption, I was finally able to take my grad students to my favorite scientific meeting. From July 12-17, we attended the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in Norfolk, Virginia. This conference was the first scientific meeting I ever attended as an undergraduate in college, and it inspired me to pursue my Ph.D. and an academic career. I was so proud of my students for winning multiple travel awards to support their trip across the country! They all presented on their research, met fellow herpetologists, and enjoyed the student mixers. We even snuck in a lab trip to the Virginia Zoo. Overall, it was a great trip and I look forward to next year's summer adventures :)
