Cindy Costello has worked in the clinical and forensic laboratory field for over 40 years. She specialized in drugs of abuse testing and education while using a unique drug trend tracking method state to state and nationwide. As a result, Cindy was able to spot new drug trends even before they were known to most law enforcement. Cindy used her expertise to advise legislators, judges/prosecutors, and assist/educate/ train law enforcement, corrections, schools, and drug treatment facilities.
Cindy worked with and mentored under a few of the inventors of oral fluid, hair, sweat, and meconium drug testing. Cindy was worldwide sales and marketing director for one of the leading drug testing manufacturers and has trained and certified thousands of people for drug testing by various matrices.
Cindy volunteered a great deal of time and was used an advisor to help get school drug testing laws passed initially through Congress. Cindy also volunteered time for the National Sheriff’s Association and the Indiana Sheriffs to help the suboxone smuggling problem in jails and prisons.
Cindy has conducted hundreds of lectures and training courses and continues to stay current on drug trends and drug testing, and then translating that information to various agencies.
