Meet Courtney Reichert. She’s always on the go. From representing Alcami in charity races to mentoring new analysts in the labs, Courtney is the epitome of the Alcami Way. Her sense of awe for all things science is exemplified in her dynamic background in both analytical testing and biotechnology testing and research. Courtney is currently part of the analytical testing team. Based out of Alcami’s Wilmington, NC labs, she also travels to the Durham, NC and Charleston, SC labs to train analysts and share her experience and enthusiasm.
Fresh out of a United Way planning meeting, Courtney offers to talk with us to gain a better understanding of analytical testing and offer advice to young professionals.
Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk. Did you grow up knowing that you’d be a scientist? Hi, I am excited to share my views! Growing up, I had a love for all things science. There was never a moment in my life that I doubted what I wanted to do. There is always knowledge to be gained and so much more to discover in the world. Biology is all around us. We can use virtually any living cell or organism and manipulate it to discover something new. The limit is never-ending to what you can learn.
