Laura Petersen

Founder & CEO, WA

I have been working in the Biotech Supply Chain industry for 30 years. I’m passionate about serving the startup research and development space with special attention on building a solid foundation in the procure-to-pay process. The culture at IA fosters a high standard for excellent customer service, work -life balance and self- care. My family is most important, including the four-legged furry members. I make a mean stroganoff and in true PNW fashion, own a kayak but not an umbrella!

Brittney Moore

Operations Manager, WA

I have been with IA for 6 and a half years. I’m a mom of five kids, ranging in age from 14 to 2. I love being a mom and watching them grow up. I love playing video games with my fiancé and having rap battles with my kids. In my free time, I also enjoy cooking new meals for my family, playing fun and competitive board games with friends, and savoring a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning.


Melissa Leach

Buyer, NM

I love nature and exploring new places. Whether it's hiking in the woods or visiting a new city, I'm always excited to see what's out there. It's like a never-ending adventure. I make an effort to learn something new every day. It could be as simple as reading a new article, trying a new recipe, or just talking to someone with a different perspective. Learning keeps life interesting, and I believe there's always something new to discover.

Michelle Crochet

Senior Buyer, WA

I joined the IA team in March of 2019.I enjoy working in Purchasing as each day presents a new challenge and I get to flex my “attention to detail” muscle. I am an avid mystery reader, a taco lover and adore making memories with my husband, two teenage daughters, large extended family, and good friends. You will often find me looking for a local restaurant to try, a small business to support (homemade orange rolls, anyone?) or an unexplored place in my own PNW backyard.

I value being a great team player who brings organization, creative problem solving, and an adept work ethic. A few of the things I enjoy doing in my free time are spending time with my family, playing games, creating art, and spending time in nature. I’ve been a part of the IA team since March of 2022.

Colleen Williams

Senior Buyer, FL

I am an avid reader of true crime stories. I find the psychology of criminals fascinating, and I enjoy learning about the cases that have baffled investigators for years. I also love tending to my garden and my pet birds. I have a small murder of crows that I enjoy watching interact with each other and with the other animals in my garden. On weekends, I enjoy going on outings with my teenage children. We go to the movies, the park, or just hang out at home and play games. I love spending time with them and getting to know them as they grow into adults.

With a penchant for video editing, I spend my spare time pursuing animation as an outlet for creativity.
