It’s Been Awhile!

Where has the time gone?  I have been so preoccupied at work.  I have some good news (or is it?)!  I got promoted to Biologist Supervisor at my lab.  What a change!  Now rather than just concentrating on my work, I have to be worried about everyone else’s work too!  And their schedule, questions, behavior, etc…  but it is a labor of love.  I have such a big heart for my lab, the people there, and the work we do that I am happy to be working my tail off for the lab’s greater good.

Being a supervisor is such a different prospective.  I like that I have been in the various Biologist positions at my lab because I now can see both sides.  It gives me a better understanding of where people are coming from and a certain amount of compassion.  I know how it feels to answer to someone… and remember things I always wished for from management staff.  That is something that is always on my mind.  What did people whisper behind the last supervisor’s back?  What did they/we complain about? How can I make it better?

One of the reasons I took this position is because with state jobs, you have to move up a certain path.  You cannot be eligible for other positions if you haven’t taken the right steps.  I also thought I could really help the lab.  Sometimes new blood is good, but I don’t think it was the right time for someone new to step in and change things around.  We had already undertaken way too many changes in a short period of time.  It would have been stressful.
So what can you expect from me?  More blog posts!  I will continue to share my experiences as a Biologist and also as a Supervisor.  You will also see tidbits from my home life… primarily my feathered and furry friends.
Glad to be back!  Have a wonderful weekend!
