I am honored and privileged for your visit of my website. Thank you and Welcome.
Currently, I am a professor and director of the diagnostic medical sonography program in the College of Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where I have total responsibility of the planning and delivery of the educational program which includes (and is not limited to) organization, administration, periodic review and evaluation, and continued development of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program.
I joined the university in 1994, where I had earned my bachelor’s degree in ultrasound. A registered diagnostic medical sonographer, I hold a doctorate in higher education and a master’s in health professions education from the University of Rochester. I am the president of the Rochester Ultrasound Society. I am also a site visitor of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and inspect ultrasound programs nationwide.
I am currently serving on the Government Relations Committee for the National Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography where I previously served as a Western Upstate New York Representative. I have presented and published numerous papers on various aspects of ultrasound. I have delivered several invited speeches and have won accolades for teaching, including a 2002 RIT Eisenhart Award for Outstanding Teaching.
I was included in the 2009 edition of Marquis’ Who’s Who in America. In 2010, I was nominated for the national Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography Distinguished Educator Award, the Rochester Institute of Technology Gender Diversity and Inclusiveness Award and the Rochester Institute of Technology Eisenhart Award for Outstanding Teaching. Additionally, I was nominated for the Associate Dean Position in the College of Science at RIT where I respectfully declined due to personal reasons.
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common."
