A University of North Georgia graduate with a Bachelor’s in Biological Sciences. Michael's career started as a teaching assistant for Genetics, Vertebrate Zoology, and Herpetology. In 2012, he began working with peripheral neuropathy testing at an industry-leading diagnostic lab and soon the CEO communicated the desire to move some of the company's microbiological testing to molecular-based assays. He helped develop the assays with a newly hired molecular scientist.  Seven innovative years and a ASCP MB Technologist certification later, he moved on to help other labs with all aspects of their molecular testing, validations, processes, and development. He is thrilled to be a part of the Shepard Health team and bring a pioneering spirit to the growing lab.
