Mitra Ansari

Senior Industrial Hygienist

After graduating with a BA in Biology from California State University Northridge in 2003, I needed to stay home for a couple of years. During that time I found an interest in workplace safety while traveling. After doing some research I found out about the Occupational Safety and Health graduate program at CSUN. I immediately contacted the department and started my first semester in this field. Now, I am a Senior Industrial Hygienist at Millennium and the Team Leader for IH group for VAGLA IH contracts. I assist with new contracts if needed, provide supporting documents, and participate in the interview process. What I love most about this job is the day to day interactions with people. The many challenges that come with new projects teach me new things and add to my knowledge. I also love that this profession allows me to use my strong science background. My main hobby outside of work is to spend time with my family. Aside from that, I like cooking, gardening, walking a few miles a day, biking, and recently I became interested in proofreading.
