Whitney Gibson Recognized at WK During National Lab Professionals Week

Providing answers and getting results, the WK laboratory professionals are vital members of the healthcare team, not only during this COVID-19 pandemic, but every day. This week, National Laboratory Professionals Week, Willis Knighton is recognizing them for their dedication and commitment to helping save lives.

“So blessed to be apart of the Microbiology team at WK,” said Whitney Gibson of the Martin community. “I remember being a sophomore/junior in college and taking microbiology. The professor prided himself on being tough, you know the type, well he was right by the end of semester the class was maybe 1/3 of what we started with. Me...well I had an A, I absolutely loved it!”

Gibson said she asked around about the possibility of being a microbiologist, no one really knew. “I was misled into thinking there was like one in a hospital. Let’s be honest, people still don’t know we exist. I searched for a couple years because nothing seemed to fit so I followed a basic Biology degree curriculum. I remember looking into options at LSUHSC-Allied Health in Shreveport (physical therapy and occupational therapy). It just so happened my aunt Patty was secretary and we discussed a different program, Medical Laboratory Science. She thought I’d be a good fit and I researched, applied and began that fall.”
