Don’t worry about money, just do what makes you happy and keeps you challenged. You will save time in the future if you follow your dreams now. In the end, do what you love and work hard; you can’t go wrong.
Dr. Amanda Jacobson received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology from St. Olaf College. From there, she pursued a Ph.D. in Cell Biology and Immunology at the University of Utah.
