Laboratory Supervisor

I began working in the Genetic Services Laboratory shortly after graduating from Loyola University Chicago in 2009. As Laboratory Supervisor, I am the point person between the lab staff and upper management.  I am responsible for maintaining CAP and CLIA compliancy, preparing validations and protocols, overseeing lab activity and production, identifying problems and implementing improvements within the lab, and providing support and knowledge to the laboratory staff and fellows.  Additionally, I work closely with the bioinformatics team to automate laboratory processes as well as explore new growth opportunities and equipment possibilities for the lab.
