Genetics Laboratory Technician IV

Hagerman Genetics Lab


I am a veteran of the United States Navy where I spent 6 years as a nuclear Electrician. 4 of those years were on 2 fast attack submarines the USS Louisville and the USS Tautog. I have worked for the University of Idaho Hagerman Fish Culture and Experiment Station working in the wet lab raising research fish in nutrition studies. I was also a technician in the nutrition lab where I did lab work to analyze the proteins, fats, muscle coloration, and other aspects of the research fish diets. Currently I work for CRITFC as a Genetics Laboratory Technician. Outside of work I enjoy reading books and doing anything outdoors. I love to watch hockey and baseball with my favorite teams being the Colorado Avalanche, the Detroit Redwings, and the Seattle Mariners.
