They say that variety is the spice of life and my job is spicy. I enjoy spicy food and I love my job. You know that awkward lingering question that comes out fast when you meet new people; “So, what do you do?” I think I have answered that over 1,000 different ways over the 7 years I have worked at ABS, doing so with a big smile as I explain my role as Biospecimen Operations Manager. I don’t just show up to work. I come to work to get important, productive responsibilities accomplished. I am a curious person which is why I chose biotechnology as my major in college. I like to ask questions and enjoy a challenge. I am fortunate that my position fits me perfectly. I could list my job description and responsibilities to give an idea of what I do. But that is not how I describe what I do. I get to accomplish so many different assignments.
