Work History (for full work history, see resume/CV attached above)
- Technical Director – Core Lab
- BS in Biology from MacMurray College
- AS in Respiratory Therapy from Lincoln Land Community College
Proficient in all aspects of research into treatment of vascular disease. This includes regulatory
requirements, protocol creation, and training for research protocols. Responsible for creation of
research imaging protocols for multiple large-scale vascular device trials.
Relevant Professional Experience
I have been the technical director for large scale labs first in Illinois and then in Ohio for 15 years. During this time,
I created a vascular ultrasound lab for a large interventional cardiology group called Prairie Cardiovascular
Consultants in Springfield, Illinois. We then grew this lab into a regional system of vascular labs servicing patients
in central and southern Illinois. I then relocated to central Ohio and expanded a single vascular lab into a network
of 12 vascular labs servicing central and southeastern Ohio.

I would like to make a difference to SVU and the profession of vascular ultrasound by continuing my work on the
SVU board of directors. The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on everyone and that included the SVU. I want to
serve a second term and help guide the society through these difficult times.
