Kimberly Zunker is a lab tech with a bachelor’s degree in clinical laboratory science, an ASCP medical laboratory scientist certification, and an MBA. She has served and worked in both civilian and military hospital and clinic laboratories, serving in the Air Force as a commissioned officer and laboratory officer in the Biomedical Science Corps where she led two Air Force laboratories.
Kimberly chose a laboratory career because it’s always changing. This has definitely proven to be true as the laboratory remains in the spotlight of the first pandemic in 100 years. For the last several months, Kimberly has buried herself in current research, attending weekly FDA and CDC calls, maintaining a technical test comparison of all FDA Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs), and listening to labs across the nation share their experiences. Doing so has made her a sought-after expert in the field by hospitals and health systems nationally.
Now six months into the COVID-19 crisis, HPI caught up with Kimberly to reflect on where we are and how we got here relative to testing and supplies. Here she walks us through a timeline of events.
