I entered my nuclear medicine technology career relatively late in life. For 11 years I practiced nuclear medicine technology in multiple hospital and outpatient settings, and also participated in Virginia Commonwealth University's nuclear medicine technology educational program as a clinical instructor. In 2007 I joined the faculty at VCU as the program's clinical coordinator--and presently continue in this capacity. I currently serve on the SNMMI-TS Publications and Quality Committees. I am married (but no children) and play viola and violin as a creative outlet.
