Mollie Wooden serves as the Laboratory Supervisor at Monterey Bay Analytical Services (MBAS). She is a graduate of Cal State Monterey Bay where she had multiple internships trying to find the right career for her. Upon graduating, she worked for the Monterey Bay Aquarium analyzing the water quality of the tanks and water quality system. She had also started as an intern at Monterey Bay Analytical Services in 2012.

In addition to the responsibility for the microbiological and biochemical analyses, she is the principal analyst for metals determination by ICP-MS and ICP-OES and oversees laboratory QA/QC requirements to name a few duties. Her recent passion in outreach was sparked by presenting to college and high school students around the peninsula which has evolved into her drive to educate people about working in water quality labs including creating classes and performing more outreach via social platforms (@CaLabAnalyst). She holds a B.S. in Biology as well as a CWEA Grade III Lab Analyst Certification.
