Growing up in a small town on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, Christy Thomson didn’t have too many opportunities to see science up close. But she had curiosity and talent — and today she’s a research scientist at Amgen’s facility in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Christy is passionate about science learning and encouraging young people (especially girls) to pursue STEM education. She passes her knowledge and experience to a future generation by participating as a mentor in the Let’s Talk Science program. Watch as she explains how Amgen’s company culture encourages her to give back.
