What do you do at UHS?
I’m a radiologic technologist, which is a fancy way of saying I’m an x-ray tech. I primarily work at the medical clinic in the Simpson Center — we actually have an x-ray room under the stadium! You can usually find me working at Tang on Fridays (or whenever there’s a free staff lunch). I started here in February 2018 just a few months after finishing my degree. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work!
What do you find most interesting about working in college health?
I really enjoy talking to the students: where they’re from, where they hope to go. I also enjoy hearing about the ways in which they’re making an impact, be it in sports or academics.
What's your "Tang Tip" for students?
Many of our students are navigating their own healthcare for the first time and that can be really daunting no matter what stage of life you’re in. My advice: don’t be afraid to ask UHS staff for help, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. We’re here for the students, and if we don’t know the answer we can direct you to someone who does. Explore and utilize the many resources here because they’re awesome!
What are your hobbies/what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
My husband and I love to travel and are always planning something. Next up, Scotland! We spend a lot of time in the mountains hiking, boating, and hanging out with friends. I love to disconnect and go “off the grid” whenever I can get away with it. When I’m at home, I like to work in the garden, hang out with my cat, or get lost in a good book.
