General Background
I have worked as a radiologic technologist since 2009 and for the Methodist Health System since 2011. Prior to serving in my current position as the Clinical Coordinator for the Radiologic Technology program here at NMC, I was a staff technologist and clinical preceptor. I do still actively practice as a PRN technologist at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Memorial Hospital. I have a diverse background and experience in multiple clinical settings including trauma and private practice.

My favorite part of teaching is watching my novice students grow throughout their schooling and graduate as my peers in the imaging sciences field.
