Welcome to Hardy Diagnostics' International Marketplace!
Meet Your International Sales Specialists
I joined the Marketing Department of Hardy Diagnostics in 2017, where it was my privilege to lead the Marketing Administration Team for 5 years. Having transferred to International Sales in August 2022, I’m excited with the opportunity to more directly support the valued International customers of Hardy Diagnostics. Administration, systems creation, helping to establish and maintain effective day-to-day operations is my specialty and I look forward to bringing that skill-set to the International Sales team. As a 100% Employee Owned Company, our customers can rest assured we care deeply about the work we do each and every day. I’m proud to be one of hundreds of employee owners of a company that provides lifesaving products to our customers; and look forward to establishing lasting relationships as we work together to diagnose and prevent disease across the globe.
