After serving 8 years of service at home and abroad in the Air Force, I decided to make a new career in Vascular Technology. During 2003-2005, I attended Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
After completing an externship at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado I graduated with an Associate of Applied Science in Cardiovascular Technology. I became a Registered Vascular Technologist with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers in November of 2005, and a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer in 2017.
A thirst for knowledge led me to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management with an emphasis in Marketing from California State University, East Bay. Being able to use the knowledge in my role while earning the degree was of particular benefit.
I enjoy engaging in advancement of vascular technology to better serve patients and adherence to quality fundamentals and optimization.
When not assessing the arteries and veins in the body, I enjoy volunteering for NWVT, SVU, JVU, playing in the ocean and most of all hanging with my family.
