Professional Summary

I am the Program Director of the Advanced Medical Imaging Technology Program in the College of Allied Health Sciences, University of Cincinnati.  I am a product of my program earning my baccalaureate degree in 1982 from the University of Cincinnati after completing my studies in Nuclear Medicine Technology.  I worked at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton for 4 ½ years as a nuclear medicine technologist before coming back to the University of Cincinnati.  Upon returning to the University, I served in the capacity of both a staff and research technologist.  In 1992, I was appointed as the program’s educational coordinator and assumed full responsibility for the program’s operation in 1993.  I was awarded my Masters Degree in Education in 1997 from the University of Cincinnati, College of Education where I specialized in Curriculum and Instruction in Adult Higher Education. 
I have worked for approximately 30 years in nuclear medicine and have been involved in the instruction of students for every moment of those 30 years as either a clinical preceptor or classroom instructor.
