What is your role with BioTek? 
My position a here at BioTek is CLS. My lab is located in Palm Harbor, Fl

What is the best thing that happened to you at work this month?
I think the best thing that has happened to me this month at work would have to be the completion of transitioning my lab and patients.

What is the number 1 reason you joined BioTek?
For the opportunity to see and make a difference in a patient’s day to day, as well as the opportunity for growth.

What has been your favorite patient success story?
So far , I’d say my favorite patient success story is hearing how a little girl went from extreme headaches, runny nose, and rashes, to not having anymore headaches and everything else brought down to a minimum.

What piece of advice would you give to other BioTek Allergy techs/locations?
If I could give advice to my BioTek family , I’d say make sure stay organized and be repetitive with the patients that way you remain on the same page and their therapy experience / out come can be pushed for success.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
The best gift I have ever received was a family portrait drawn by my daughter for Mother’s Day one year.

What is your favorite family tradition?
In our family we make homemade ravioli and sauces for Christmas Eve every year. And tradition follows if you don’t roll your ravioli you don’t get any.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
If I could trade places with someone for a day , I think I’d swap with someone that is my opposite just so I can see how it’d would be for me in an “upside down” world.

Where is your favorite place in the world? 
My favorite place in the world is Sunday evenings watching a movie and eating dinner with my kiddos. However if I were to be able to pick a favorite place to travel I’d want to go see Ireland or Germany.

What are you passionate about? 
When it comes to what I am passionate about, I’d say my prosperity over time for my family; work , school, home.
