We have an excellent panel of speakers for this year’s YFSF Breakfast Session “Getting There: Unique Professional Journeys in Forensic Science.” Christine Funk, General Counsel for the Washington, DC, Department of Forensic Sciences, will present “How to Blossom Where You Are Planted and Figure Out How You’ll Grow.” She will be joined by Ann Ross, a board-certified forensic anthropologist and professor at North Carolina State University, who will present “Succeeding in Forensic Science: Not an Oxymoron”.

In honor of YFSF’s 20th anniversary, former YFSF Presidents and committee members will join our speakers in an open Q&A session before breaking out into a one-on-one résumé review session. Attendees should plan to bring multiple copies of their résumé/CV for review. If you are an experienced forensic scientist, please consider serving as a résumé reviewer for the next generation of forensic professionals.

The YFSF Breakfast Session will be held on Thursday, February 19, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
