Tara Schnell


Shout-out to Tara Schnell. Tara serves in EHS in Biosafety as the Biosafety Trainer. One of her roles is the liaison between Biosafety and the IT team that develops our online biosafety protocol form.

Each month I need to send materials to the Institutional Biosafety Committee and ran into an unexpected error in the system. Since the materials needed to be sent that day, I let Tara know of the error I was experiencing in the online system and she worked with the IT team to solve it. This was very appreciated by me as the day materials go to the committee tends to be a very busy one, and any delay for me can add quite a bit of stress. Tara’s helpfulness and understanding really made my day as the issue was quickly resolved and I was able to send the materials on time. Thank you Tara!

-Stephanie G. Kutz, MS, RBP
