Melanie Duquette is Chief Growth Officer of GeneDx, driving commercial excellence as she leads both the company’s commercial growth strategy and the sales, market access, clinician marketing, and client services teams. 

Melanie’s career has been guided by her passion for increasing access to genetic testing globally, and she spent the past two decades defining and executing profitable commercial growth strategies to expand utilization of genetic testing.
