Ruth Ann Bizoff
Accounting and Administrative Support Coordinator
“I have a bachelor's in biology, but I’ve never really gone that route; I’ve always been an administrator. I was in the research division of the Missouri Botanical Garden, and I loved to be in that environment, but I’m not a researcher. Now I’m working with researchers at Tyson.”
Is there anything you wish the researchers here knew about what you do?
“There’s nothing that they really don’t know: I’m actually a very vocal person!
I think it’s frustrating for them because they come here and need something, and go ‘Can you find this?’ And I’m sure I can, but they are at the very beginning level of the request. I still have to go several levels to procure something for them. It can take a day or two.”
Is there anything you are constantly trying to get for the scientists?
“Oh, sure. I just placed an order for 100 mls of bovine defibrinated blood to feed mosquitoes! I have the best job ever!”
Ruth Ann takes care of many, many administrative details for the Tyson community every day. The photo above is the view from her office window.
