Shauna graduated in 2020 with a BS in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry. She began her career as a microbiological lab technician in college, creating media, and cultivating bacteria. After graduation, Shauna worked as a molecular lab technician testing COVID-19 samples.
She jumped into the cannabis industry as a cultivator, to better understand how the production side works. She then combined her science background and cannabis interest and became a chemist for ATOZ Labs. At ATOZ, Shauna is involved in sample intake, preparation, extraction, and analysis. Her main analysis is running the ICP-MS for arsenic, mercury, lead, and cadmium.
Shauna is also involved in attending networking events, updating the social media accounts, and writing blog posts for the website.
Hanna is a trained chemist with a strong passion for ensuring patient and consumers have access to safe and effective cannabis. Prior to graduating in 2020, Hanna was a research assistant responsible for preparing, extracting, and analyzing atmospheric aerosol pollutants using UPLC-ESI-TOF-MS.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree in chemistry, Hanna jumped straight into the field of cannabis. She started her career as a Lab Technician running cannabinoid potency using HPLC and pesticide screenings using LC-MS/MS.
Hanna is excited to continue her career in the cannabis industry with ATOZ Labs. At ATOZ, Hanna performs pesticide and mycotoxin screenings via LC-MS/MS, as well as cannabinoid potency screenings via HPLC. She will also be attending marketing and networking events on behalf of ATOZ Labs.
