Ms. Vanderploeg launched IMC in 1995 primarily as a provider of drug and alcohol testing services and consultation with employers. She formed the company with her husband, James M. Vanderploeg, M.D., as the Medical Director. He is a certified Medical Review Officer (MRO) an essential element of the drug testing process. The company has grown to become a national provider of quality testing services for both small and large companies. Although IMC works with all types of companies, Dr. Vanderploeg’s background in Aerospace Medicine brought IMC to an expertise in administering FAA-regulated testing programs as well as those regulated by NASA. IMC employs excellent staff to further that expertise. IMC is proud to have among its clients JetBlue Airways, Million Air, UPS, Wyle Science, Technology, and Engineering, Barrios, MEI, and Honeywell.
Ms. Vanderploeg has been active in many professional organizations including the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA) where she is an instructor and a frequent presenter. Helping to continually improve the drug and alcohol testing industry with the development of industry standards is one of her passions.
