  • Her role as Chair of the Professional Standards Coalition, which helped to establish licensure of lab professionals in New York
  • Why it is important for lab professionals to join professional societies
  • How writing a letter to Regis Philbin resulted in her appearing on his TV show with other laboratory staff
