The AEIRS Organization is the foremost expert in disseminating the latest research and evidence-based practice in radiologic science education.   



In the past eight years, I have had the pleasure of serving in various leadership roles in radiologic science professional organizations. Most recently, I served as a Director at Large for AEIRS for three years. In these roles, I have gained experience in the management of Annual Meetings and strategic planning execution, conducting efficient and productive board meetings, creating committees, and developing and implementing committee charges. 



To elevate the AEIRS organization to be the leading organization for networking of educators, research, dissemination, and development of the most current educational practices in radiologic sciences. As membership in professional organizations continues to decline, innovative ways to reinvigorate current methods for dispersing up-to-date scholastic resources to the membership to renew a commitment to education and foster a passion for life-long learning and research of radiologic sciences professions among educators and students.

AEIRS must continue along the path of those who have made it a successful organization. We must also recognize the challenges that face current and future educators. Educators face a unique situation in understanding and teaching not just the art and science of our profession but now the advancements with AI, DR image post-processing algorithms all while advocating for our students’ mental health wellness. AEIRS must always play a role in the discussions that affect our profession and advocate for MIRIS educators.



I celebrate 25 years as a registered radiologic technologist in 2023 and have been involved in the education of students for 23 years of those years. I’ve served as a clinical instructor, clinical coordinator, program director and department head as well as over 10 years in programmatic accreditation. Networking and speaking to colleagues reenergize my passion in teaching our future medical imaging leaders. My experience across different levels of the profession will allow me to serve the members of AEIRS in a positive manner.



My goals are to advocate for MIRIS educators within the larger professional landscape. Promote concepts and methodologies that ensure the MIRIS professionals of tomorrow excel in an increasingly complex and advanced technologic environment.
