My vision for AEIRS is to mentor future educators by creating, implementing and expanding opportunities for scholarly activities. I would like to secure more endowments to create and fund these opportunities I envision creating a strong peer mentoring program for future educators that will provide a network with leaders in the profession. In addition, I would like to see collaboration and increased communication with state education societies.



I bring 30 years’ experience as an educator, two-time President of the AERTSNY, graduate of two leadership academies, Program Director and Chair of Allied Health Sciences. I pride myself as a good listener who is considerate, fair, transparent and motivated by passion. Open and effective communication is of the upmost importance to me. I am also organized, committed, and steadfast in my efforts.



My first goal is to increase membership by reaching out to all state societies.  Promoting academic excellence, enhancing communication, increasing membership through networking and collaboration are the foundation AEIRS and echo my goals. Enhancing research, grants, and travel abroad prospects through endowment is important. Being president-elect would give me the opportunity to help future educators build their foundations for success and keep the mission of our society alive!

I see AEIRS as the foremost source to stimulate a commitment to life-long learning and research of the radiologic sciences.



I have served as the chair of the Marketing and Sales Committee, stepping into the position when vacated. During my time on the committee, we were able to double the number of vendors attending the meeting. I also have served on the OSRT board of directors and now as the current President. I have been an ASRT Delegate for the past few years, serving on the different committees. I am currently the Chair of the Educational Resources Committee, in which we are looking at different ways in which to increase the networking of educators throughout the year.



AEIRS should be the leading organization for networking, dissemination, development, and research in radiologic sciences. As membership in professional societies continues to experience a decline, innovative ways to reinvigorate current methods for the pertinent sharing resources to the membership in order to renew a commitment to the education while fostering a passion for learning and research of radiologic sciences professions among students. The energy of the AEIRS annual conference should continue with the same energy throughout the year.
