Deanna Shukis M.S., CT(ASCP)
Senior Application & Implementation Specialist Psyche Systems Corporation
Deanna Shukis began her career at Psyche Systems Corporation in January 2013, as an application specialist and trainer. Shortly after joining the organization, she assisted a team of innovative thinkers and leaders in the development and design of NucleoLIS, Molecular Information Management System (MIMS). The product serves as an industry standard for its features and functionality requirements within the molecular diagnostics laboratory.
As a visionary within the company, it was a natural progression for her to engage and help manage the entire software application product line that Psyche has to offer. Her experience working in the Anatomic Pathology laboratory as well as a genetic/biotechnology laboratory has allowed Shukis to help aid the development of the software features as an end user to better understand best practices for a laboratory overall.
Shukis attended the University of Rhode Island, obtained her undergraduate degree in Microbiology/Biotechnology and completed a graduate program at the University of Rhode Island and the RI School of Cytotechnology. She received an ASCP Board Certification in Cytotechnology, while working on a Master of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science.
