Vanessa Kachadurian is a medical sales professional of Armenian decent who loves dance and fine art.

Vanessa Kachadurian is a medical professional who has excelled in sales. She uses her business acumen to sell medical supplies and services to doctors, physician’s clinics and hospitals. Currently, she works as an account executive for a laboratory company in California. Her current sales job requires her to perform two tasks: servicing existing accounts and expanding the company’s reach by attracting new clients. Her sales pitches focus on anatomical pathology, molecular laboratory studies and histology.

Her current company is one of California’s fastest-growing laboratory services companies. It has built a reputation on innovative techniques and a fast turnaround. It offers a range of biopsy and clinical laboratory services and is known for its accuracy in diagnoses and reporting. Because the company uses Web-based technology to share information, patient results are delivered efficiently to providers.

Outside of her work as a dedicated and talented sales professional, Vanessa Kachadurian is passionate about serving others and about the fine arts. She currently serves on the board of a large private school in Fresno and helped the institution develop its preschool program. Education is everything, and this belief was passed down through her family.

An Armenian-American, Kachadurian celebrates culture and enjoys exposing people to a variety of cultures – especially her own. One way she promotes culture is through dance and music traditions. To that end, she serves on the board of The Lively Arts Foundation in Fresno. The foundation actively brings world-class musicians, dancers and other dramatic arts groups to Central California. Additionally, Lively Arts Foundation puts on an annual performance of The Nutcracker in December and invites members of the community to audition and participate.

A career in sales wasn’t part of her plan when she enrolled at National University in San Diego. Vanessa Kachadurian graduated cum laude and earned her degree in global international studies. Vanessa had hoped to use her heritage and passion for culture as a path into a career, but found herself in sales instead.
