On June 27, 2016, she became certified as a Registered Microbiologist in Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Microbiology. Ms. Venari received her B.S. degree from Utah State University, Logan. To earn the NRCM credential, Ms. Venari first met rigorous educational and experiential eligibility requirements and then passed a comprehensive written examination attesting to her knowledge and skills in the pharmaceutical and medical device microbiology testing laboratory.

The NRCM is a voluntary certifying body which was founded in 1958 and has certified microbiologists in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico and on six continents. The goals of the NRCM are to minimize risk to the public by identifying qualified microbiologists; encourage mastery of microbiological knowledge and skills that contribute to improving the human condition; and foster professional pride and a sense of accomplishment in qualified microbiologists. Employers use NRCM certification to distinguish their company and attest to their employees’ competency.

The American College of Microbiology, a component of ASM's Professional Practice Committee, is responsible for certification of microbiologists and immunologists, accreditation of postdoctoral training programs, and other programs consistent with its mission of providing leadership in promoting the high quality and ethical practice of the microbiology and immunology professions for the benefits of human, animal, and environmental well-being.
