I graduated from The University of Toledo with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Associate of Applied Science in Cardiovascular Technology. For approximately 8yrs I was the head coach of a high school rowing club. Setting individual and team goals, promoting hard work and team work, and encouraging a positive attitude brought success. The values I tried to teach, allowed a handful of my former athletes to be successful in there rowing career while in college. Upon completing my Associates in Cardiovascular Technology, I have worked at a local hospital for 15 years in the cardiology and vascular department. The hospital I worked at is a clinical site for a local vascular program and we have students who are enrolled in the program, rotate through. It was our duty to not only teach the students how to scan accurately, but to apply the concepts they have learned in the classroom with the ultrasound images they have obtained. I have enjoyed preparing students for the real world and provide them with as many tips as possible in order to succeed. It is truly rewarding to watch students grow professionally.

I love spending time with my family. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, exercising, and reading a good book when I get the chance.
