Personal Information


Personal Statement
I feel blessed to be able to say that I have had a long and active career in the field of medical sonography both in a clinical setting and now in sonography education, It is a profession that I have never lost my enthusiasm or excitement for, Sonography is a constantly growing and changing field , requiring continual learning and advancement of one’s clinical skills. I enjoy interacting with our students and patients and staff at our clinical sites tremendously, and it is exciting to watch the knowledge base and clinical skills of our students evolve during the course of their education at Sandburg. I believe that our graduates can make a difference in the lives of their patient’s and in our medical community and it is extremely gratifying to see them succeed and excel in their chosen profession.
