Katie Bessette

Director of Regulatory Affairs

Why I joined 

I liked that Guardant had innovative products and a great philosophy about making a social impact. Plus, I would have felt like I had failed in my career if I worked in Silicon Valley my whole life and never experienced the excitement of a start-up!

What drives me

Teaching others about regulatory requirements in IVD development and finding ways to be innovative and flexible in execution.

How Guardant’s different

Our vision for creating change and being impactful. A lot of companies might say it, but we’re living it every day.

Best perk

Talented coworkers.

Personal note

My favorite travel destination is Bora Bora. I’m ready for another honeymoon with my husband!
