Mattie got her start in microbiology in 2012 when she began working as a laboratory technician for an environmental microbiology lab in Denver, CO. Over time, she studied and trained with expert microbiologists until she became the lab’s lead microbiologist / mycologist. Taking the information she gathered over the years, she left Denver and began traveling to train new analysts around the country up to company standards. She graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2015 with a BA in Psychology and Biology, to help combine her love for interacting with people with microbiology. She moved to Nashville in July of 2017 and has recently joined the Crowe lab as a Research Assistant. When she isn't working, Mattie enjoys watching live music of all kinds, has been a concert photographer for over eleven years, and enjoys reading and playing games.
