230 - Finding Pacific spiny lumpsucker moments amid chronic illness with Katie Furey
This week Kadie laughs and cries through this interview with Katie Furey, a good friend and fellow graduate student in the Ecology Department at Montana State University. In this episode, we chat about Katie's career path, her current research investigating the feeding ecology and trophic relationships of salmonids in Georgetown Lake, MT, as well as her experience with rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety, and ADHD. While this episode is on the longer side and contains more giggles (and tears) than average, we cover some really crucial topics about the representation of chronic illness and disabilities in fisheries and the importance of health insurance for graduate students.
Main point: Prioritize finding joy, silliness, and Pacific spiny lumpsucker moments in your life! (And go to therapy if you can afford it!)
