October 1, 2019 - Our team is comprised of creative, friendly, mission-focused antibody enthusiasts who take pride in discovery science. This summer, Abveris will be featuring all of our team members on our blog to showcase the personalities that make our team a community. Twice a week, tune in to learn more about members of our team and see what they do inside and outside of work.
Q: What excites you about science?
A: I’m excited by how you can use science to help people and cure illnesses, the endless possibilities, the creativity aspect combined with the critical thinking aspect, understanding how things work, and discovering and learning new things constantly.
Q: What is your favorite fun fact?
A: Kindness is contagious.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: I like to cook, bake (and decorate), crafts and DIY, adventure with my chameleon, crossfit, run, hike, and explore state parks, blog, research/read about scientific topics and journal articles to improve my understanding and to be able to think of my own experiments, spend time with my Nana and Papa, guitar, hiking, biking, sell painted shells for charity, throw knives, and sew.
Q: What is the coolest thing you have done at Abveris or what is your favorite memory of working here?
A: It's really hard to choose just one. My favorite part of Abveris is working with such incredible people. I have a favorite memory with each person specifically, but my favorite memory as a group is the company party because I got to introduce my blood family to my work family. The coolest things I have done is a tie between getting the opportunity to attend and present at PEGS, getting to decorate the lab/office areas, when we troubleshoot and are able to get good sequence results from a difficult clone, and I'm extra excited about being able to contribute to develop ion channel antibodies.
