I am a Sonographer specializing in breast ultrasounds for 7 years. I started my ultrasound education after completing my Bachelor's of Science in Biology. I was very unsure of what I wanted to do after undergrad but I found ultrasound and I have been enjoying it every since!
I began my ultrasound career at a Level II Trauma Hospital where I learned, trained, and excelled in abdominal, obstetrics and gynecology, small parts, and limited vascular ultrasound studies. While working there I obtained certifications for ARDMS in abdominal , ob/gyn and breast sonography.
I started training in Breast imaging shorty after starting at the hospital. I love doing breast ultrasounds because I work very close with the radiologist who give great learning advice and help. The patient aspect in this field is very different from the hospital setting and I enjoyed the more personal time spent with the patients and really helping them to have a peace of mind.
Ultrasound is a field that is growing and changing rapidly. I feel proud to be in such a unique and growing area, where I know I can help other students too! I remember where I started and felt almost like I wasn't cut out to do ultrasounds but I had great support from family, friends and school was a big help. If I can help just one student learn and gain max potential then I feel like my life in ultrasound has come full circle.
