My career path and accomplishments since graduating from Alma:

After graduating from Alma, I worked at the Health Department of Northwest Michigan as a lab tech performing partial chemistry and bacteriology on water samples, as well as testing nasal and nasopharyngeal swabs for SARS-CoV-2. I moved to Grand Rapids Fall 2020 and enrolled in the Masters of Public Health program at GVSU. Throughout the first year of the program, I worked as a chemist in the Pharmaceutical industry. Currently, I have less than two semesters left in my program, and I am back working part time in the lab at the Health Department of Northwest Michigan performing wastewater surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 using ddPCR as a part of a statewide collaborative surveillance project.
