Shelley Sandiford started her scientific career hoping to someday run her own lab. Instead, she spent fifteen years in academia as a student and post-doc fellow and was subjected to more and more unstable research work. As she saw more of what it would be like to forge a career in academia, she decided to leave the field altogether, learn new skills and start her own company creating science explainer videos for magazines and digital publications.
