Technician Spotlight: Rachel Harris
What is your position and city location with BioTek?
I am a clinical lab specialist located in Dalton, Georgia.
What is the best thing that happened to you at work this month?
The best thing that happened to me at work this month was there were several questions and more patients calling wanting to be allergy testing due to the high pollen count.
What is the number 1 reason you joined BioTek?
One of the number one reason I joined Biotek is the previous employee stated that Biotek runs like a family and as a unit. I love that I can call someone to get a quick answer on the things that I need help with.
What has been your favorite patient success story?
I have a patient that was fully covered in eczema. He is in month 7-8 currently and his eczema is almost completely cleared.
What piece of advice would you give to other BioTek Allergy techs/locations?
I would tell them to send out notes or emails to the doctors twice a month so they know what the goal is for that month and to keep a close relationship with them to help Biotek and the company they are located at reach their goals.
What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
The best gift that I have ever received from Biotek was being employee of the month. Definitely took me by surprise but I do try to make sure everything gets done in timely manner.
What is your favorite family tradition?
One of my favorite family traditions is putting the Christmas tree up and decorating it. It just reminds me that everything in life is easier to do as unit.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
I would love to swap places with Jesus, my boss here at Biotek, just to see what his day consists of. To see how much traveling he does and all the places he has to go because I definitely love traveling.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
One of my favorite places in the is Nassau, Bahamas. It is so gorgeous there are breath taking. I haven’t went in a few years but definitely plan on taking a cruise early next year to settle this void.
What are you passionate about?
I am very passionate about being hard working and letting everyone know that I can exceed their expectations. This includes being a mommy, gf, and an employee. I feel like in life that no matter what you do, you should always do your best at it, so that you receive the best results.
