Personal Information


Teaching Philosophy / Personal Statement:
I truly love my profession of medical imaging and want others to love it also. I encourage a lot of hands-on practice in our positioning labs along with working with each student to help them with the highly technical material from our textbooks. Watching students “get it” after a lot of hard work is simply amazing. It also makes me feel proud that all of us here at Sandburg have helped make our community healthcare workers confident and competent caregivers for all of us.


Degrees Earned:
AAS, in Radiology from Sandburg and BA from WIU


Previous Teaching Experience:
I began working with the Sandburg students in 1993 in their clinical sites, helping them with the
hands on work with real patients. Trio hired me to tutor for the Radiology Program in 1997.
I was asked to teach part-time in 1999 and continued until 2002 when I was then asked to come
on board as a full-time faculty member for the program.
