Currently Teaching (2014-2015)
I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at Northwestern Health Sciences University.
I had originally planned for a career in medicine during my college years until an unfortunate experience in a cadaver lab led me to discover the benefits of chiropractic as a patient. During my first radiology class as a chiropractic student, I discovered my passion for radiology. I knew immediately that I wanted to be a radiologist and my professor was kind enough to tell me all about chiropractic radiology. This led to my completion of a three and a half year radiology residency, followed by certification by the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology in 2007.
During my residency, I was lucky enough to have many teaching opportunities, and it was at this time that I discovered my love for teaching as well. There is nothing like the feeling of helping students and seeing firsthand their understanding of concepts. For this reason, I continued to teach until 2012 in the Palmer College of Chiropractic clinic system following my residency.
In 2012, I was fortunate enough to procure my dream position in the Radiology Department at Northwestern Health Sciences University, which is allowing me to pursue my interests in both radiology and clinical education. My next goals are to pursue various interests in research as well as obtain a master’s degree in education so that I can better serve my students. It is my sincere hope to provide students with the best possible education.
