Hey there!

Welcome to the Benchling Community. We’re so excited you’re here.

I’m Ellie Stuvland – one of the community managers at Benchling. We’re all about building connections and fostering collaboration, so we’d love it if you took a moment to introduce yourself. I’ll start us off – a bit about me below.

Born and raised just south of Minneapolis, Minnesota 🌲 Left the cold winters in search of sunshine and landed in Santa Barbara 🌤 where I live with my partner and 3 year old Australian Shepherd, Pickle 🐶. We’re expecting our first child this fall (new parent tips, welcomed!) so I’ll be quiet around here come October but – don’t worry, my amazing teammates will keep the fun going.


Now it’s your turn 😉 reply below to introduce yourself to the community! Looking forward to meeting you all.


- Ellie

Hi! ✨

I’m Melissa DiTucci -- I work on the Customer Success team, run Benchling Bootcamp series, build our best practice guides, and will be playing an active role in the community! I was born and raised outside of Boston and work in Benchling office downtown. Sometimes my dog Murphy and cat Squirrel guilt me into working from home 🙃 Before I worked at Benchling, I had some pretty cool jobs including conducting research with butterflies 🦋, working at some incredible botanical gardens 🌷, and taking care of goats on a farm 🐐
