Tell us about your arrival at Medicago 20 years ago.
After my bachelor’s degree, I had planned to spend the summer tree planting* in northern Quebec before starting a master’s degree. But I changed all my plans after I heard there would be a baby coming! I decided to stay in Quebec City to wait for my son’s birth and I started looking for a job. My only criterion was to find a job in which I would have a direct impact on people’s lives. Medicago was actively recruiting and I decided to try my luck. That’s how I got my first job on the Molecular Biology team.
