Michelle Briscoe joined Brooks Applied Labs (formerly Brooks Rand Labs) in 2004 as our VP of Analytical Services and Technical Director. In 2013, she ascended to the helm as our President/CEO and went on to successfully lead two companies through a complex merger in 2015. Fifteen years later and with 27 years of experience in the trace metals and metal speciation world, Michelle maintains her enduring commitment to foster a culture of fun and scientific inquisitiveness while leading our amazing crew to produce the highest quality specialty analytical services possible. Congratulations, Michelle – thank you for everything you do to make our company stand out above the rest.
Last month, BAL celebrated the 5-year work anniversary for two employees: Helena Vu and Patrick Nye. As a veteran of the industry with more than 20-years of experience, Helena’s technical knowledge, efficiency, and commitment to the highest quality data are indispensable! After many years as an ICP-MS chemist, she was promoted to lead our Metals Speciation Group in 2017. With her big smile, exemplary work ethic, and strong technical abilities, she truly embodies the spirit of BAL. Shortly after Patrick began at BAL he soon proved himself as a key employee specializing in preparing trace metals samples for ICP-MS analysis. He can work through the most complex preparations with a high attention to detail. When he’s not at work, he’s often working on his goat and chicken farm or enjoying time with his son who was born last year. Thank you both so much for all you do to make our company awesome!
Elizabeth Madonick, one of BAL’s outstanding technical services specialists, celebrated her 15-year anniversary with the company in November. Elizabeth’s significant contributions to BAL over these years has been so appreciated by her colleagues and our clients, with whom she is well known and respected. This exceptional milestone was marked by a slide show at our January all-company meeting sharing pictures of Elizabeth at company events over the past 15 years. Please join all of us at BAL in saying, “Congratulations and thank you, Elizabeth!”
