I have worked in the clinical laboratory for 8 years. As a Registered Medical Technologist, I have ventured and been assigned on different laboratory departments. I also handled the ordering and inventory of laboratory supplies (reagents and consumables). For a short time in my career, I accepted an administrative job in the lab and liaised with the different departments of the institution.

In 2012 to 2016, I studied full time and took Masters of Science in Public Health, Medical Microbiology.

You will find me to be well-spoken, energetic, confident and personable. I am very eager to share my knowledge, expertise, and skills to the best I can. I am a self-starter and am very eager to learn new skills and methods. I also have a wide breadth of experience in writing reports and making presentations with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met.
