Rachael is Director of the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory and Director of the Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, University of Kansas Health System. Working tirelessly throughout the pandemic, she implemented in-house COVID-19 testing, completed the instrument verification in only two days, and has since implemented multiple different testing platforms.

She believes that staffing shortages are the biggest challenges laboratory medicine currently faces.
