Paula Hennon

Hi! I’m Paula

An entrepreneur, scientist, relationship-builder and an unshakable optimist dedicated to helping you become a voice for science.

There is no shortage of experts on the Internet today. But we all know there are “experts,” then there are the real experts – and I’m gonna guess that if you’re here, on this page reading this, you’re one.

I want to empower scientists to see our science as STRATEGIC, promote our discoveries as RELEVANT, and communicate the implications of our research to SOCIETY.

My goal is simple:

I want scientists to become unapologetic influencers in our society.

To build a community of influencers who can teach youth with enthusiasm, shape public policy, solve big problems, and improve life we need:

  • sustainable funding,
  • solid research, career and commercialization plans,
  • to increase our thought leadership status, and
  • to share our stories and unique ways of thinking.

If my words have left you wondering, “Gee, what should I do next?” I can help…

{I can’t work miracles alone…}

Learn a little more about me and meet my team.
