No one should sacrifice their authenticity to fit into a career and be successful.


Hi! My name is Itzamarie. I am a HUGE supporter of mentoring and taking a well-rounded approach to career advancement. It's not just about the skills and knowledge; it's about the whole person and helping them grow in every aspect of life.

I know firsthand how challenging it can be to navigate the world of science and advance in your career. But with my help, you don't have to do it alone. I can guide you and support you in what you need to manage your career and take it to the next level. So if you're ready to take the next steps in your career, let's work together and make it happen!

Itzamarie has played a wonderful role, helping me to understand the opportunities after the postdoc career. Her help particularly to understand the career choices depending on my interests was really helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations with her about the challenges associated with the career transition, to understand and display relevant skill sets, discovering our own strengths and values. Her enthusiasm, friendly and helping nature makes her an asset.

I was unsure where to go. I was applying to remote jobs but I was lost. I highly recommend the STEM Career Laboratory Program because it gives you the tool and confidence to take the next steps in your career. I now have a better understanding of the environment I need to grow and to create abundance for myself. I have a more clear direction as to what I can do to feel happy in my career. If we had not been working together, I probably would have still be lost as to what path I should take.
