Worm meetings have been so crucial for my career. As a postdoc, they gave the opportunity to give talks and present in workshops that helped make my work more visible to the community. I have loved participating in and organizing workshops on genome editing and conditional protein depletion to help get these tools out into the community and ensure that they work robustly. And I love the name badge swaparama. In 2015 I took home a Craig Mello badge!
