Hello all!


I am currently the Quality Assurance coordinator for an Essential oils and Aromatic chemicals company. I've held this post for nearly a year now and am slowly taking over parts of regulatory and EHS. Due to management decisions, about 5 years ago we did not renew our ISO 9001 certification, and thus we currently do not have any certification. Due to increasing customer demand and requirements, as well as pushing from the inside (mainly by myself and other "newer" staff) we are moving towards some type of certification - likely HACCP and cGMP. We have a ton of work still ahead of us, but we are moving in the right direction. 


I graduated from McGill University with a BSc in Molecular biology and Microbiology in 2013, and I completed my MSc in 2014 in Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry. My Master's thesis and research focuses on food allergens, their detection and management in the food industry. 


I do not have a ton of industry experience, but I am a motivated youngster with an aptitude for Food safety systems. 


Excited to explore this new avenue of communication and information!
