Meet the Staff
Mattie JensenTechnical Manager/Laboratory Manager
Mattie started her career with Aerobiology Laboratory in 2012 at the Denver, CO location. Using her years of managerial experience, she was originally hired as the laboratory’s Office Manager. After graduating with honors from Metropolitan State University of Denver, she began studying and training with a great technical staff of microbiologists and worked her way into the laboratory. In that role she maintained all quality assurance procedures to meet the Standard ISO / IEC 17025, assisted clients in sampling procedures and next-steps, and honed her technical skills through the analysis of thousands of microbiological samples at the Denver location. In 2017, Mattie moved to Nashville, TN and began working at a large research laboratory within Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She was assigned a variety of tasks including defining and writing all laboratory SOPs, training programs, and quality assurance procedures. She also ensured working environments were kept sterile and endotoxin free through environmental monitoring and risk assessments, as well as overseeing the purification of antibodies for large-scale vaccine research. The laboratory team was named the “Best Academic Research Team” at the Vaccine Industry Excellence Awards in 2018. In July of 2018, Mattie moved to Chicago, IL to return to Aerobiology Laboratory, where she is pleased to announce her position of Technical Manager / Laboratory Manager of the newest location in Downers Grove, IL.
