CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, APRIL 5, 2023 – LifeSpice welcomes Stephanie Dortch to the R&D team as our Lab Assistant, based in our Chicago Headquarters. We’re excited for Stephanie to share her lab technician experience and great organizational skills to our R&D team.

Stephanie previously worked as a Sterile Processing Technician at a veterinary hospital, where her responsibilities included ensuring sterilized environments for procedures. Prior to her time at the veterinary hospital, she attended Grand Valley State University where she received her biology degree. When she isn’t working, she loves playing with her dog, watching action movies, and feeding her sweet tooth cravings.

Stephanie was drawn to LifeSpice by her interest in the food industry and desire to gain experience working in a exciting new lab environment. As a Lab Assistant, Stephanie will work with our R&D team to package and send samples to customers, order raw materials for projects, and keep our lab stocked and efficiently organized. She is looking forward to learning the process of creating seasoning samples from start to finish, and collaborating with members of our different LifeSpice teams. When asked what she is looking forward to in this position, Stephanie says she’s “excited to be on the team and looking forward to learning more about the industry!” Welcome to LifeSpice, Stephanie!
