Grass roots research that leads to new and exciting opportunities.
Research Associate Professor (Current Employee), Wilmington, NCMarch 6, 2014
Research oriented position where I was responsible for synthesizing compounds of need for other researchers within the group. I was also responsible for increasing the production of brevenal, a compound that has potential as a treatment for Cystic fibrosis and is in preclinical studies. Brevenal is a natural product synthesized by the marine dinoflagellate – more... Karenia brevis (more familiar as the organism responsible for red tides in Florida). The organism is currently grown in 10L batches and I was able to increase the batch size to around 200L. From this work, I learned patience, as the cultures take a long time to grow. I had a lot of support from coworkers as they have been working with this organism for many years.
During the synthetic stage of my work, I had to purify the compounds for the end users. This usually involved using HPLC techniques and many of the instruments were old. These often had to be repaired, so I also learned how to dismantle the instrument, remedy the problem and put it back together.
The varied experiences are my favorite part of the job, but the lack of stability in the funding is the hardest part. – less

The Department of Payroll is one of the most productive area of Finance. I work with the Bi-weekly division providing services to the entire university. We are a great example of true team work. Keeping everyone happy is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part is working with great co-workers ensuring that every employee is paid in a timely – more... manner. – less

Strength and Conditioning Internship
Strength and Conditioning Intern (Former Employee), Chapel Hill, NCJune 22, 2013
On a typical day I would start setting up the weight room for the wrestlers at 8:30am. Then, from 9- 10:30, I worked alongside my mentor, overseeing and coaching the team through their workout. After the team left I would clean up the gym. This included reorganizing weights and equipment, restocking the fridges, and disinfecting the area they used. – more... When that was done I would complete any tasks that the weight training coaches needed. Some of these tasks included writing up workouts, filling in or analyzing athlete spreadsheets, editing example videos for the training database, and working the front desk. My days would end with informational session with my mentor regarding what I learned each day and how I could improve my leadership/teaching abilities when dealing with peers. He allowed me to ask any questions I had at this time everyday. It was a great learning experience and taught me much more than just how to run a lifting session. – less
