Building your skills while you gain knowledge
I graduated MSU in 2016 with a degree in Biomedical Laboratory Science. I went to St John Detroit for the match program where I graduated, passing the MLS exam in 2017. I worked in their Molecular Pathology lab for about 18 months before accepting a Technical Applications position out in the northern Chicago area. This was for a medical device manufacturer that makes the testing equipment used for PCR testing in microbiology labs. In less than a year I accepted a Field Application Specialist position for a similar company where I oversee our business in MIchigan, allowing me to move back to my home state. This was my eventual goal with taking the Chicago position, I was just very fortunate for it to happen much quicker than expected.
