I have served as an instructor in the Department of Biotechnical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences for over 15 years. I bring to my role the many years of experience I gained teaching students while simultaneously working as a nuclear medicine technologist in a variety of clinical settings, from large university hospitals to private offices.
I have been a member of clinical trials teams, contributing my expertise in molecular imaging technology alongside other health care providers. My expertise includes electronic dual- and triple-head detectors, nuclear cardiology, positron imaging and monoclonal imaging for specialized tumor detection. Balancing the demands of diagnostic imaging, patient care and management and clinical competencies has enriched my capacity to instruct students as emerging technologists.
I lecture and serve as lab instructor for Anatomy 113. The classroom and lab allow me to bring my clinical experience to bear in teaching students about the relevance of lifestyle, fitness and nutrition in precipitating anatomical and physiologic changes which alter wellness and promulgate disease. I also teach the Radionuclide Therapy course (NMD 415) for the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program and parts of the In Vivo I& II Studies courses. I am one of the instructors for the Patient Care and Management (NMD 340) course and the Clinical Conference course I & II for senior students. I am on the Admissions Committee that screens new applicants to the department.
Challenging, demanding and rewarding careers in health care continue to expand. I enjoy my role in advancing the knowledge base and personal development of each student I teach and mentor.
