The Laboratory has undergone a complete state-of-the-art renovation including the creation of a separate Microbiology laboratory and transitioned to a new computer system.

She earned her Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from the University of New York, Geneseo, in upstate New York and then began her career working in various laboratory roles.

She then moved to Virginia to work at Roche Laboratories, a commercial lab in Virginia Beach, Virginia before moving to South Florida where she held progressively responsible roles at Boca Raton Community Hospital and then to Orlando Regional Medical Center in central Florida which led her to Flagler Hospital.
