Biographical Sketch

I have been employed by ULM since August of 2006 as an instructor, and was reappointed as an Assistant Professor of Radiologic Technology upon completion of my Master of Science degree in 2010 and then granted tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2017. As an employee of ULM, I have been active in teaching, advising, course development, and assisting with a full curriculum change as well as a full eight-year reaccreditation for the Radiologic Technology program. I am passionate about service to the University and the community and as advisor to our professional student organization, Chi Beta Gamma; I encourage students to be active in both. I have been active in our state society by presenting and by serving on committees as both chair and member. I am also a member of our national society and serve as an assessment writer for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. 

Research Interests

I believe research is a vital part of the imaging sciences. While the research I have done may not be all publications, I do stay current with the advancements and technology. My main research passion is forensics. I completed my grad school thesis project on forensic imaging and I incorporated this into my pathology courses. Another one of my courses, RADT 4000, is a research course. In this course, I guide students through the ins and outs of APA style formatting, instruct them in databases to utilize in research, and help them prepare their own research projects and presentations on topics varying from pathologies to specialty modalities in the imaging sciences. I have used my knowledge of trauma radiography and first aid to teach 4th grade cub scouts how to handle real life accidents and injuries. They actually got to use what they learned on me when I severely injured my own ankle during our next hiking adventure!  I spend a great deal of time researching topics for my courses to bring fresh and current information to them in new, exciting methods.
