Supporting STEM Education
Portland Public Schools and EnviroLogix have partnered to encourage the scientists of the future. We sponsored the first annual Portland STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Expo for local middle and high school students in 2014. With over 1,200 students in attendance the first year, we plan to continue and grow this event for years to come. Our staff scientists routinely visit students in Portland classrooms as well, to support their science curriculum, answer questions and provide hands-on learning opportunities.
We support the Preble Street Teen Center with annual Thanksgiving food drives and clothing collections, to help local teens in distress get through the harsh Maine winters. We host Red Cross blood drives, build houses with Habitat for Humanity, and provide volunteer service at many other valuable community organizations like STRIVE, the Iris Network and the Maine Wildlife Park.
Protecting Our Environment
EnviroLogix is committed to making a lasting difference. In 2014, we adopted a section of the Portland Trails - a nonprofit land trust that preserves the local environment for public access - and lend a hand with cleanup and maintenance. We have also had the privilege of volunteering to repair and maintain green spaces within the Royal River Conservation Trust. Our Sustainability Team works on implementing new ways for us to lessen our environmental footprint. In 2015, we added composting to our existing recycling program in an effort to further reduce waste.

Employee Spotlight: Katrina Christie and Ryan Whipkey
Congratulations to Katy Christie and Ryan Whipkey for recently graduating with Master’s degrees! They both utilized the company’s Tuition Reimbursement benefit to cover the costs of pursuing a higher education, and we are very proud of their hard work and success.
Katy is a Scientist in our Molecular Diagnostics Product Development Group. She started at EnviroLogix 7 years ago with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. With the encouragement of a colleague, Katy enrolled in online courses and completed her degree program in 18 months while working full time and teaching as a Group Fitness Instructor. She now holds a Master’s degree in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University. Katy says she chose their program because it meant that "I didn’t have to sacrifice my time here at work or quit my job in order to get the degree that I wanted,” and is grateful to have achieved her degree without accumulating any additional student debt.
Ryan is a Conjugate Chemist as a Scientist II in our Rare Reagents department. He has been with EnviroLogix for five years and already has two Bachelor of Science degrees, both graduating from the Honors program at the University of Maine:
1. American Chemical Society certified degree in Chemistry
2. Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology (double major) degree with a minor in neuroscience
Most recently, Ryan graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a Master’s of Business Administration degree. When asked about his motivation, Ryan explained that “a successful entrepreneur once told me that in the beginning of one’s career the most important career development strategy is to learn as much as possible and once learning is exhausted then it is time to move on to new challenges. Enrolling in a part-time MBA program provided me an excellent opportunity to learn business in the context of a biotechnology firm…Ultimately, I would like to use my business education and technical background to move into a leadership role focusing on business development, organizational strategy development and implementation, and/or operations research at the executive level.”
