Monique, owner and founder of Diagnostech, began her career as a medical technologist at the SAIMR, now known as the National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) – the largest diagnostic pathology service in South Africa. Monique’s constant need for growth led her to obtain her National Higher Diploma (NHDip) in Chemical Pathology in 1993, however, her entrepreneurial spirit never abated and Monique left the laboratory environment to explore sales and marketing in the diagnostic industry.
It was her bravery and the promise of better things to come, that encouraged Monique to step out of the familiar and allowed her the fortuitous opportunity to become the sole distributor of Dako products in southern Africa in 2005.
And now, years later Diagnostech has grown from a two-man team to a formidable force in the diagnostics and research industry with an incredible team. Futhermore, Diagnostech is the official distributors for Agilent Technologies (pathology and genomics) in South Africa and Africa.
Not just the executive, Monique fills her time being supermom, attempting to understand the universe and making her house a home for her two beautiful kids.
