I am a California native but moved to Oklahoma around 2012 to be closer to my family and go back to school. I am a graduate of OSU-OKC, where I earned my degree, specializing in Cardiovascular sonography.
My family history of heart disease is what motivates me to help people and try to positively change people’s lives, whether it be giving that person more time with their loved one, educating the patient and/or family, or finding the answers to their questions. I feel fortunate every day, when I get to go to work.
I recently married my best friend and am a stepmom to a beautiful 7-year-old. I love explaining what I do and see the look of awe from her.
I am fortunate to work in a local hospital, where I have the opportunity to use what I’ve learned in school, and cross train in General Ultrasound. I am someone who loves to learn and do new things, so I’m the first to ask the “dumb question” and jump in to those difficult and challenging cases. Some of my favorite days are when we have students, where I can share my experiences (positive and negative). I love celebrating a student’s success in scanning, understanding a concept or even when they teach me something. I feel that this is what brought me to be an officer with OSS and look forward to seeing everyone again.
