About Anne Jones
Anne Jones, born in Winston-Salem, NC, graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a BS degree in Nursing in 1974. From 1974 to 1981, she worked as a nurse in major hospitals in North Carolina. It was during her job as a clinical nurse specialist in the Neurosonology Laboratory at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine that she obtained her first ARDMS credential in 1979 as a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS). This was the beginning of a long and strong relationship with the field of vascular technology. Anne obtained her RVT credential from ARDMS in 1983. From 1984-1986 she was Director of New York Medical Imaging and then from 1989-1992 she was Co-Director of the vascular laboratory at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, NY. Anne was SVT President in 1985 and was Chair of SVU's Government Relations Committee for several years. She has professional appointments that are too numerous to mention in this article. Her commitment, tenacity and many contributions to the vascular ultrasound profession over the years are matched by few in the profession.
