A graduate of Harvard Business School, Cheek started her at-home lab testing company Everlywell in 2015. In 2017, she went on the show Shark Tank to gain additional funding, which she achieved. The company had reportedly made $65 million in sales by 2019. In May 2020, Everlywell launched its FDA-approved at-home COVID testing kit, which claims to deliver results in 24-72 hours. Everlywell was the first digital health company to receive the FDA’s emergency use authorization during the pandemic, according to Inc.

“I am honored to be part of the 2021 Groundbreaking Women list; it’s an amazing group of women to be associated with,” Cheek told Worth. “I founded Everlywell to make lab testing more affordable and accessible for everyone, and I honestly wish this wasn’t groundbreaking. If 2020 has shown us anything, it’s that all Americans need access to testing. I am proud to work alongside the powerful women on this list to create a future of possibility, and specifically a better health care experience.”
