Lab work keeps employee engaged for half a century
Long service is something many companies like to celebrate, but it’s rare to find someone with a lengthy enough career to give the kind of perspective DSM employee Nancy Jones has. She has worked as a medical laboratory scientist for half a century, and during that time, advances in technology have significantly altered the work she does. But a true love for her profession and what it means within health care for patients kept her in the lab – for a very long time.
But in June 2014, Jones finally packed up her microscope and headed out to enjoy retirement. The Swan Valley Star and Times told her story; click here to read it (photo and story published here with the permission of the Swan Valley Star and Times).
