Worked for 1 years, 9 months from Aug 2019 to May 2021

Graduate Assistant - Georgia College & State Univeristy

I joined the master’s biology program of Georgia College in the fall of 2019 as a graduate assistant. As such, I was considered an employee of the university as well as a graduate student. For most of my graduate studies, I was assigned to work in the biological preparation lab under the supervision of the science buildings supervisor, Brady Bennett. There I made augers and broths that would be used in microbiological labs, sterilized and cleaned test tubes when needed, and occasionally inoculated augers and broths with bacteria. This experience provided me the technical experience to work in a biological testing lab if I should take up such a position in the future
