I have worked for 26 years as a Surgical Technologist at two University Level One Trauma Centers. For 23 of those years, I was a primary preceptor involved in training nurses and technologists. I have been a coordinator of six surgical specialties, including nine years as a Transplant Specialist. I have been involved in numerous multi-organ transplants and was the one chosen to assist the only attempted Trans-Species liver transplant.
I have worked as an educator in three different Surgical Technology programs and have been the Program Director here at Aims since the program started 12 years ago. I am nationally certified as a Surgical Technologist and also have an Associate of Applied Sciences degree in Surgical Technology.
