Thank you for the opportunity to attend the 2014 AETA-CETA/ACTE joint convention. I had a great time and I am looking forward to coming again in the future. I arrived and immediately began learning at the preconference sessions. Receiving hands-on tutorials from a few of the industry’s best was great, and the learning curve only got steeper from then on. Each of the presentations presented studies and data that challenged me to think outside of the traditional mode of learning that I receive in the classroom, and I truly enjoyed this dynamic of the conference. Finally, Mrs. Jane Pryor did an excellent job preparing the student/technician sessions. I had the unique opportunity to see and test several different brands of tools, which allowed me to appreciate the differences to make an informed decision on what I liked and did not like, and to choose my own favorites. Thanks to everyone involved in those two sessions, as they were very beneficial. While in the laboratory, I’ll catch myself applying knowledge that was gained at the conference and feel a sense of satisfaction and gratitude.

I will take any opportunity I can to become a better and more efficient embryologist. It is an industry that I have a passion for, and I am always willing to stay late in the laboratory or go the extra mile to help develop my skills. In this case, the trip from College Station to Madison was an extra 1,100 miles, and I truly do appreciate the AETA, its members, and its scholarship committee for giving me the opportunity to help reach my goals. Thanks again.
