Regarding this transition to Environmental Health and Safety, Dr. Ogilvie stated that she was, "excited because I could give safety help and guidance to researchers in a very technical way." In 2022, she became the Lab and Research Safety Manager for the UMN system. Through her years at UMN, Dr. Ogilvie worked to develop programs and procedures alongside researchers, making sure they were comprehensive and easy to implement.

Additionally, Dr. Ogilvie was elected to the Campus, Safety, Health, and Environmental Management Association Board of Trustees in July of 2021 as a Member at Large. In her work with CSHEMA, she volunteered her time and efforts by planning and presenting professional development seminars for safety professionals at the annual conferences and symposia hosted by numerous national and international institutions.
Dr. Ogilvie joins SafetyStratus after over 11 years of working for UMN. Commenting on this transition from the world of Academia into that of supportive technology, Dr. Ogilvie stated, "I am excited to join the team that I've grown to know so well. This opportunity allows me to use my background as a researcher, chemical safety expert, and an EHS manager to help our clients achieve the highest level of success while utilizing our enterprise EHS Software Platform and modules." Dr. Ogilvie acknowledged the excitement and welcome challenge that comes with leading a new division within a company and confidently asserted her readiness to meet that challenge.

In addition to her role as the leader for Customer Success, Dr. Ogilvie is also excited to bring her expertise in chemical management and Hazardous Materials Inventory reporting to the robust Chemical Inventory Module.
