I started Western Laboratories, Inc. in 1973... 47 years ago. I attended California State Polytechnic University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, California. I also attended grad school at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho. After which, I worked as a soil scientist for the NRCS and Boise Cascade. I also taught at U of I and Treasure Valley Community College.
I started working for John when he opened his Nematode Lab in 1998. I graduated from Advanced Agricultural School and University of Agriculture in the Netherlands.
I have worked for John since 1992, I just passed my 29 year mark in March! I am the Business Manager, I over see sample preparation, data output and everything in between. I said in our 1998 newsletter, "You really do learn something new about John every day!" 23 years later, that still holds true! I also handle the billing; invoices and accounts receivable.
I've been working with Western Laboratories for 40 years. My background is Agronomy, I'm a graduate of University of Idaho. I work out of Blackfoot, Idaho which is approximately 300 miles east of the lab. I am in charge of field sales and consulting. I consult large potato growers throughout Eastern Idaho.
I started at Western Laboratories in 2006, I originally started in the office helping Cathy and then moved into a Lab Tech position until 2016 when I came back into the office. I assist Cathy with our accounts receivable and data output.
I have been working for Western Laboratories since 2015. Throughout the entire year I manage our virtual payment terminal, website, and assist Cathy with our in-house bookkeeping. During the summer months, I come in about 9:00pm with our night crew and prep samples until about 2:00am so we can keep our 24 - 48 hour turn around guarantee!
On March 20, 2020 I turned 47 years old! I offer a wide variety of tests for your soil and tissue needs! Check out our testing offered page to see what I can help you with!
