Nadia Meghjani is a microbiologist with a good eye for meticulous details. This makes her a perfect fit for the role of Microbiology QC Supervisor at our US facility, where she’s in charge of performing checks regularly on our products.
We are a company that prides itself on our ability to show the benefit of our products with proven scientific data. And Nadia is on hand to help our customers if they have any technical questions about how our products work and how they can meet their specific needs.
Nadia also has a long history of commitment to environmental issues. Academic study into mycological specimens in North Georgia and the development of green technology fish bait are some of topics she has researched.
This passion for making a positive difference through science and innovation is one of the reasons why Nadia wanted to make a difference at Genesis Biosciences. But how does her day-to-day role help her achieve this aim? Here’s what Nadia thinks…
Some people probably wouldn’t know what your role involves – how would you explain it?
As Microbiology QC supervisor, my role involves checking our fermented powder throughout its whole process and conducting validation check points. This ensures we produce a high quality product.
I also use my microbiology expertise in the technical department to assist our customers with any questions or concerns they may have.
What was it about Genesis that made you want to work here?
The products that Genesis provides to their customers are innovative, high quality and different from any other in the industry. The niche that Genesis has dominated is creative, eco-friendly and a forward thinking idea. This very much aligns with my values.
What’s the best thing about working as a Microbiology QC Supervisor at Genesis?
Genesis provides a family-like atmosphere. I can talk about my ideas with anyone across the board or authority level. They are always open to hearing new ideas or suggestions that can improve our work environment and the quality of our products.
What does your typical day include?
Everyday brings a new situation and perspective to the table. Yet the most consistent task is to ensure the purity and the quality of our product is higher than the industry standard.
We take our samples through extensive and rigorous testing to ensure no pathogens are present, that our spore counts meet specification and that our product is aesthetically presentable. The process is double and tripled checked, from the time it is produced to its packaging.
What’s the most challenging part of this industry?
As a Microbiologist, it is hard to convince an audience of how important and beneficial our bacteria can be. Other companies may exaggerate or downplay what Bacillus bacterium can do. This can be difficult to overcome.
Fortunately Genesis is all about experimenting and validating. We can provide our customers with accurate information and data to show how amazing our Bacillus strains can be. We also show how they can be used for both broad and specific applications.
What’s your personal philosophy, if you have one?
To be a leader you need to be able to communicate and have a great work ethic.
What is one thing the general public might not know about your job?
My job as Microbiology QC Supervisor requires someone to be detail oriented and vigilant about the process. There are numerous processes going on simultaneously and it is imperative to follow our standard operations thoroughly and in a timely manner.
What would you say is your / Genesis’ greatest achievement so far?
Genesis has provided me with great opportunities. Not only to learn new skill sets but also to explore my out-of-the-box thinking. With the support and open mindedness of the company, I have been able to show my knowledge and was promoted to Microbiology QC Supervisor.
What’s next for you at Genesis?
I hope as the company grows, that I can be an integral part of their process. I would love to continue to be a growing part of a company that is booming with an eco-benign® mentality and commitment to making a difference in the world we live in.
