Russ Roberts has done a little bit of everything at EnviroLogix. A flexible employee and creative thinker, with an educational background in computer science, he has flourished in every role. Russ was hired to work in our busy shipping department in 2005. He loved the hands-on, physical nature of the job, but moved into the rare reagents lab in 2007 to help out with washing dishes, reagent purification and other projects. As our small company continued to grow, he later transitioned into an R & D lab. “People believed in me and in the quality of my work, and I kept proving that I could do it,” Russ explains. He is currently a Lab Tech, developing rapid lateral flow tests for on-site mycotoxin detection.
When asked what has kept him with the company for 12+ years, Russ simply says, “I get a taste of everything I like, and I enjoy the mental stimulation of science and technology. I love the people here and I love what I do.” What else does Russ love? His favorite movie is Napoleon Dynamite (and his favorite animal is pretty much a liger).
