Andrea’s love for science began when she started her studies at the University of Pretoria, completing a BSc in Human Genetics. She continued her education by completing her Honors Degree in Genetics in the Molecular Ecology and Evolution Program, with a focus on population genetics.
She subsequently interned in the Animal Health Department at the South African Association for Marine Biological Research. Her role consisted of a combination of molecular diagnostics and assisting the veterinarians with medical procedures and routine health checks. After her internship, she was offered an opportunity to work at Lancet Laboratories assisting with Covid-19 sampling and later transitioned into an administrative role in one of the peripheral laboratories.
Andrea joins Diagnostech as our Internal Sales and QMS Administrator where she will use her passion for science to help, understand, and support our amazing customers and team.
In her free time, she is a voracious reader who loves to travel to magical, far off places (in a way her budget allows). When she can’t do that, she enjoys good food, good friends and the occasional jaunt to the mountains.
