Program Title: Unexpected Journeys
Description: Fascinated by career journeys that, like Lesley's own, haven’t followed a straight line, this documentary explores the circuitous and unexpected career journey of Dr. Jennifer Gardy. Not quite mimicking her childhood dream of being a doctor in the morning, a dentist in the afternoon, and a ballerina at night, Dr. Gardy has nevertheless carved out a science+performer career as both full-time public health microbiologist and part-time television host.

Lesley Evans Ogden is a Vancouver-based freelance science journalist and alumna of Simon Fraser University where she completed a PhD in wildlife ecology. Writing for a variety of science magazines and websites including BBC Earth, Scientific American and New Scientist, she is also involved in two science television documentaries currently in production for CBC and as a lifelong radio listener, is intrigued by the allure of audio storytelling
