Shobha Palmer QA Associate I – LSNE-Madison

“My favorite part about my role at LSNE is working closely with multiple departments to fulfill my responsibilities.  It is satisfying to work with my colleagues to help them meet their daily tasks and achieve a common goal.”

Shobha’s drive to find a challenge and to make a difference led her to LSNE-Madison. As a member of the Quality Assurance team, we are inspired by Shobha’s commitment to quality and her approach to collaboration.  Her role requires close interaction with multiple departments on a daily basis – for example, working with Materials Management to release materials for use in manufacturing or performing visual inspection when performing Acceptable Quality Limit testing. Shobha goes above and beyond in her role to provide support to her peers and effective and efficient customer service to LSNE’s clients.

Adolfo Aranda Maintenance Technician – LSNE-Madison

“I really like that LSNE is growing quickly and everyone is working together for the common goal.”

Adolfo was looking for an opportunity to relocate to be closer to his family when he came across an open position at LSNE-Madison. Utilizing his previous experience with lyophilization technologies, he brings additional depth to our staff. Priding ourselves on the ability to fix equipment quickly and keep service in-house, Adolfo has played a crucial role in optimizing the lyophilizer’s hydraulics systems in order to keep our manufacturing equipment in working order and meeting our client’s deadlines.

Ivanka Grgic Manufacturing Technician IV – LSNE-Manchester

“My favorite part of working at LSNE is the people. LSNE is my second family.”

Ivanka has been with LSNE for over 17 years and works at our Sundial facility located in Manchester, NH.  As a veteran employee, Ivanka is a strong asset to LSNE’s Operations team as a Lead Technician. She has been recognized for her efforts to improve overall operations and is responsible for training new technicians on LSNE’s systems and procedures.  Over the years she’s seen the progression and globalization of LSNE while remarking that the company still keeps a community feel.

Leticia Ordás Bandera Microbiological QC Manager – LSNE-León

“The best part about last year was becoming a part of LSNE.  This year, I am looking forward to working together with our clients as a fully commercial CDMO.” 

Leticia became part of LSNE with the acquisition of the León facility in June 2019. In the first year as part of Team LSNE, Leticia and her team experienced the site’s first commercial approval. The León team came together to prepare for the FDA Pre-Approval Inspection for a pre-filled syringe product and their commitment and diligence resulted in an inspection with zero Form 483 observations. Leticia embodies a spirit of growth and invigorates it in each of us. This excitement is palpable as we look towards new commercial opportunities in 2020.

Javier Calles Process Development Technician – LSNE-León

“Since becoming part of LSNE more people are interested in coming to join us and sharing in our mission. LSNE’s leadership is spending time on-site to support our growth with new capacities and capabilities. This brings clients knocking at our door with challenging projects. And the best part is that this is just the beginning.”

As a young researcher, Javier made his way to Spain to take part in ophthalmic research. His background and expertise make him a perfect fit for the growing demands of LSNE-León. Since the acquisition, he continues to see positive change happening within the organization and he along with his colleagues continue to rise to the occasion and bring innovative solutions to complex projects.

Donna Comeau Planner – LSNE-Bedford

“I love that our organization is part of the production of so many therapies that help people with their illnesses.”

One of the greatest challenges of the CDMO industry is the demanding timelines for production. Donna started at LSNE over 4 years ago and optimized our schedule to best utilize manufacturing capacity and meet client timelines. Recently, LSNE was asked to put a project on the production schedule to help with the COVID-19 pandemic.  With only a two-and-a-half-week window, Donna worked diligently to schedule this vital project and see it through to production with little to no impact to existing customers.

Kristin is a new employee at LSNE and values the opportunity to grow the validation team at our Madison site. As a reliable, service-oriented group her dedication to cultivating a collaborative environment among her team and other functional groups has already positively impacted projects and she looks forward to more opportunities in the future.
