I began working for WRE in February at the request of my aunt who is over the sales department. During my employment at WRE my official title has been Sales Representative however my responsibilities included but weren't limited to managing existing sales accounts, arranging import/export documentation and collections via international Letters of Credit. I was indirectly responsible for importing various crude oils for the manufacturing of biodiesel. The crude product originated from India and was delivered to Houston, TX. I also served as the IT Guy, I managed their server, terminal license server, and performed repair and maintenance as necessary on any pc's on site. I really enjoyed working for WRE but due to the delay in rectifying the differences between the House and Senate versions of the Tax Extenders Act of 2010 (HR4213) WRE was forced to diffuse most of their sales team. I was offered a position on their construction crew but with the classes I'm taking this semester I couldn't meet the intense work schedule required by that department. If passed HR 4213 will provide a $1.00 per gallon tax credit to BioDiesel producers, without it BioDiesel production is not profitable. As of now biodiesel production in the US has basically come to a complete halt causing many people to lose their jobs. I am currently looking for a more stable position that will allow me to continue my education. IT Specialist, American Digital Systems(ADS), Salt Lake City, UT
ADS provides technical support for various retailers and offices throughout the Wasatch front. As an IT Specialist I was required to make routine site visits to many of their customers. I also scheduled updates and maintenance for customers networks. I was also required to respond to customer calls or requests. During this time I was able to develop my ability to work with others, present a positive company image and maintain a good relationship with contacts of ADS.
Lab Technician I, ARUP, Parasitology and Fecal Testing. Salt Lake City, UT
While working at ARUP I was required to work in direct contact with patient samples. I performed several tests including geimsa stains, preparation and staining of slides for Ova and Parasite Exam, preparation of slides for 'modified' acid fast staining, preparing patient samples to be tested for cryptosporidium and others which were automated. Occasionally I would prepare and stain blood samples on slides for Med Tech analysis. I completed all the training required to become a Technician II in the first 2 months working there but I was unable to progress any further because my position was temporary. I worked in the PAFT lab at ARUP for just over 3 months before returning to school that fall.
Floor Manager, The Leonardo, Salt Lake City, UT
The Leonardo is a non-profit organization in conjunction with the Utah Science Center. I began volunteering with the Leonardo because it is a unique museum that focuses on science, technology and innovation and at the time was hosting the world famous Body Worlds Exhibition. After a short time management asked that I take a paid position as the Floor Manager. This position acts as the first line of defense toward: managing volunteers, attending to emergencies, maintaining fire-code compliance, and other daily operations. I continued to work with the Leonardo throughout the remainder of the Exhibition.
BIM Specialist, KCM P.C. Salt Lake City, Utah.
A friend introduced me to Kim Mangum, the lead architect and founder of KCM P.C. He offered me a job as his personal assistant. Having an interest in computers, engineering, and 3D technology I accepted the position. I worked as his assistant just over a month before I was transferred to the BIM department where I worked as a modeling specialist. I spent the remainder of my time with KCM P.C. working with Revit, VIZ, and other Autodesk products. During this time I was required to work with customers and present design options as the architect saw fit. Working with KCM P.C. helped me to develop the ability to communicate and present in a timely manner. Customer Service Representative, OPM Salt Lake City, Utah
Towards the end of high school I worked part time as a customer service representative (CSR) for OPM. Here I gained a general knowledge of construction and property maintenance. When my employment with OPM I was familiar with the following: Framing, Plumbing, HVAC, Drywal, Finish Carpentry, and Flooring.

Synthesis and analysis of promethazine sulfoxide, an oxidation product of promethazine. SLCC ACS Student Affiliates, Salt lake City, Utah Authors: Eve Van Wagoner, Renee Petty, Bre Garcia, Bita Adabkhah, Devon Turner, Stephanie Park, Jesse Spencer Advisors: Peter Iles, PhD Ron Valcarce, Luther Giddings, PhD Neil Bastian, PhD. Chemistry Salt Lake Community College. January 2010 to May 2010 Promethazine is used for prevention of nausea and vomiting, for sedation, for treatment of allergy symptoms, and for prevention and treatment of motion sickness. Previous research by this group has shown that Promethazine in saline solution degrades after 12 hours, resulting in a number of unknown byproducts. Promethazine Sulfoxide was deduced to be a principal decomposition product in the saline solution due to an earlier HPLC retention time than promethazine, it being more polar than promethazine. Other studies have concluded that when Promethazine degrades in blood, Promethazine Sulfoxide is formed. Pure Promethazine Sulfoxide was synthesized by oxidation. The HPLC retention time of Promethazine Sulfoxide was compared to the retention time of the decomposition products observed in stored saline-Promethazine solutions.
Promethazine Stability in Saline Solution. SLCC ACS Student Affiliates, Salt lake City, Utah Authors: Jesse Spencer, Brian Anderson, Steven Mullins Advisors: Neil Bastian, Craig Caldwell, Luther Giddings, Ron Valcarce, Sesh Seshadri, Peter Iles January 2009 to June 2009 Promethazine (PZ) is a medication frequently used for preoperative sedation in hospitals and to counteract post narcotic nausea. When administered via iv PZ is usually prepared to 25mg/ml to reduce vesicant effects and allow slow administration. PZ is physically compatible when diluted in normal saline. Due to the exigency of this medication it must be prepared in advance. However, once the drug has been prepared for patient use, there is no evidence that it retains therapeutic potency in normal saline beyond 24 hours. In order to understand the efficacy of PZ for periods longer than 24 hours, the drug was prepared and stored in normal saline at room temperature in constant light for extended periods of time. Samples were collected on regular time intervals and flash frozen before being stored -80°. Sample analysis is conducted via HPLC. Data collected will be used to determine the best storage conditions for the drug. This research project is ongoing.Perchlorate Uptake by Garden Vegetables / Indirect UV Detection. SLCC ACS Student Affiliates, Salt Lake City, Utah Authors: Susan Komanetsky, Jesse Spencer Advisors: Neil Bastian, Craig Caldwell, Luther Giddings, Ron Valcarce, Sesh Seshadri, Peter Iles January 2009 to June 2009 When USDA analysis of an Artesian well irrigating a local community garden showed traces of perchlorate, a question was raised regarding the effects of the ion on vegetables grown there. Our study was originally designed to measure the amount of perchlorate absorbed by plants. Due to economic stress the much anticipated Electrochemical Detector never came. At first we believed our project would come to the end as we wouldn’t have the means to examine or measure the presence of perchlorate in the plant samples. Having invested much time and effort in the project, primary author Susan Komanetsky refused to let her project come to an end. After meeting with our advisors and digging up old papers on ion chromatography, we found the paper, “Indirect Photometric Chromatography” which was published by the American Chemical Society in 1982. In the paper the authors describe what we saw to be a, “back alley, hippie method” for detecting ions. Using an ion exchange column, we were able to separate perchlorate as well as five other ions from the samples but species of this type do not absorb light in the UV range of the spectrum. We made our mobile phase with potassium hydrogen phthalate, which is highly absorbent of UV light, this made it possible to measure changes in absorbance resulting from the presence of the ion. When the samples containing ions were injected into the mobile phase it resulted in a decrease in the absorbance measured by our detector which showed up as a negative peak on the chromatograph. The indirect method presented in the paper worked. We developed this method further to detect anions present in vegetable samples. Extensions of this project are ongoing.
