Chief Executive Officer, Founder
Myrna Steinbaum is the owner and founder of VeniExpress. She got her start in the medical field in 1989 as a Medical Assistant in an emergency room. She later transitioned to a medical laboratory, where she worked for 15 years as a phlebotomist, teacher, and manager. After realizing the need for a mobile phlebotomy company that could go to the homes of the elderly and others who have difficulty traveling to patient service centers, Myrna opened VeniExpress in 2010. She has since grown the company to be one of the most well-respected mobile specimen collection services in Southern California and Arizona.
