Lauren Tanabe is a freelance writer and former scientist living and working in Detroit. She received her PhD in Pharmacology & Molecular Signaling from Columbia University and previously studied at the University of Chicago (BA). She spent many years tinkering at the bench attempting to unravel the mysteries that lurk inside of cells. Although a scientist by training, she is a storyteller by nature. She writes on a wide range of topics, including why she decided to leave academia for more fulfilling pursuits, motherhood, and her own struggles with identity and depression. She loves helping others to tell their own stories because every single person has a riveting tale to tell. When she is not being schooled by her three-year-old in lessons of gratitude and the wonder and awe of the universe, you can find her daydreaming and writing in various coffee shops around the city. Sometimes, she even doodles illustrations for a handful of children’s books she has written, but yet to publish.
