NAVANA Labs Hinton

Tell us a little about you and your business.

I am a well-rounded scientist with 13 years of broad experience working in the energy sector.

I moved to Hinton with my husband and three children to start up Hinton’s very first commercial laboratory in 2019 offering coal quality testing services. Most recently the laboratory, NAVANA Labs Hinton, was ISO 17025 accredited for several wastewater/drinking water parameters in addition to being accredited for many coal quality testing services.

What led you to become a Chamber Board Member?

I was new to Hinton and very interested in the challenges local businesses face.

Why is being a board member important to you?

This is my chance to give back to other businesses. I pride myself on shopping local and want to see all hardworking business owners in our community prosper.

Do you have a ‘fun’ business tip you’d like to share?

If you do what you love – you’ll never work a day in your life.
