In my professional career, I have been very fortunate to have been exposed to some incredible people & learned so much from them. I strive to make them proud for taking a chance with me early on in my career. I am inspired by the people I work with at Elegen. Seeing their hard work is contagious and motivates me to keep driving every single day. When we are all pulling on the same rope we will succeed.
Business Development Lead
What’s your favorite part of the job?
The people that I interact with on a daily basis within the walls of Elegen and the people that I meet through this opportunity I have been given. They each have their own story, and it is fascinating to hear them.
Why did you pick this career?
I remember the day the opportunity arose to join the GeneArt team. We knew this would change everything. And it did. The ability to write DNA (at a scale) was becoming a reality. There was so much focus at the time on reading DNA ($1000 genome), and very little going on when it came to writing DNA. That was only the beginning.
When I do get an opportunity, I love to play golf, fish, and be on the water. Our happy place is Sandbridge Beach in VA.
