Introducing Natalie Stringer….. content guru!

Introducing Natalie Stringer, our content guru who is building a unique LabArchives curriculum for higher education laboratory courses.

Where do you live now? Maryland – the DC ‘burbs.

What were you up to before joining the LabArchives team? Teaching at Montgomery College – Biology, Microbiology, and Biotechnology.

How’d you find LabArchives? We found each other 🙂 I was looking for a new direction in my career and Earl liked my background in science and teaching.

What’s your role at LabArchives? I have many hats but primarily my role is to start building our own lab curriculum within LabArchives. I am also here to support sales, product design, and customer service.

Favorite moment from our 2018 end of year team meeting? Meeting everyone and learning about their roles at LabArchives. It was wonderful to be able to sit down with the development team or support team and learn about their projects and what they deal with. I can now put a name to a face and know who to reach out to.

What are you excited about in this new role? Learning and influencing change. I want to help professors and scientists do what they do best. I hope that my background can help us produce a great product that supports those who are doing amazing and difficult work.
