My experience working for genetic laboratories exposed me to the reality that many barriers stood in the way of patients receiving valuable clinical genetic tests. I embarked on a three year journey to discover the reasons for the roadblocks and was inspired to create a solution. I founded Panacea in 2015 with a mission to increase access to clinical genetic testing. With an additional 6 years in Healthcare IT at Modernizing Medicine, I learned about the technology solutions integral in pushing healthcare into a much needed era of modernization. My determination to challenge the status quo, and ability to problem solve arm myself with the tools necessary for a successful leader and entrepreneur. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a double minor in Chemistry and Broadcast Journalism from the University of Miami.
