LynnLee Mitchell grew up in Ketchikan in a construction family. She has worked at many different jobs, including a variety of seasonal jobs in Ketchikan (Cedars Lodge on the dock and runner for the cruise ships at Southeast Stevedoring, to name a few). She moved to Anchorage 13 years ago, where she first worked at a rock pit and later at Blood Bank of Alaska.
LynnLee came home 3 years ago to be with family. Growing up in KTN, she played volleyball and was involved in many after school activities, so she has been on the other side of drug screens as a donor. Now, at TSS, she has learned the other side of the equation through her involvement in every step of the drug testing process, from start to finish.
Some of LynnLee’s hobbies include shopping, planting vegetables, painting rocks with her mom, listening to music, spending time with family and enjoying the beauty of Southeast Alaska – especially during the summer months. LynnLee, loves dogs and her favorite summertime activity is walking her dog (Dewey) at Ward Lake. She likes to spend weekends helping her mom in her garden and having beach fires. It’s always a highlight watching a pod of killer whales swim by, followed by a few humpbacks.
Working at TSS has many advantages and no day is the same. LynnLee has particularly enjoyed the opportunity to travel to different areas of Alaska and to the outlying islands of the Southeast. Last summer, she spent time staffing the Juneau office. She has also been sent to Sitka a few times to conduct remote drug testing for TSS clients. “One day you’re in the office, the next you’re on a boat doing drug screens,” she says. “No boring days of work here!” LynnLee considers getting called out to do drug testing is one of the exciting parts of her job, “even if it does rain most of the time!” LynnLee has very much enjoyed learning about drug testing and workplace safety, getting to know the drug testing community and attending her first National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association conference in May.
