Coila has been at Brooks Applied Labs since 2012. As the Quality Assurance Associate she reviews all data generated by the lab, performs internal audits, creates control charts, and validates detection limit studies. She is also the Safety Chairperson and strives to promote a safe work culture at BAL. Coila received a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from the Evergreen State College where she got her hands dirty as an intern for an organic farm. In her free time she is rarely on the ground as she can be found practicing aerial silks. Her boss is sure this is in attempt to run off and join the circus.
