About Me

I love being a life long learner. I am originally from Evansville and attended Central High School on the north side. I have 3 amazing children and a loving husband that I adore. I enjoy spending time with my family and going on dinner dates with my husband. I am currently certified and registered by the ARRT in radiography, licensed by the ISDH, and am a CPR instructor for BLS for the healthcare provider. I am a member of the ISRT, ASRT, AEIRS, and ISRRT. I have been teaching full time at USI since summer 2010 and enjoy passing my knowledge onto the future of the radiology profession.
