I began my cardiovascular career in 2003 as an electrocardiogram (EKG) technician while working on my vascular sonography clinical rotation requirements for my Associates degree in cardiovascular sonography. Shortly after beginning as an EKG technician, I also trained and worked as a holter monitor technician, cardiac stress test technician, and after graduation, a vascular sonographer. I began my teaching career in December of 2004 teaching a variety of courses for the cardiovascular sonography Bachelors program. I am also the Program Director for the cardiovascular technology sonography program.
