Adhered closely to quality control standards in development and labeling of diagnostic imaging materials, updating patient profiles with relevant information. I started out doing diagnostic radiology, then moved to the Ultrasound Department, then to the CT and MRI department.

In all areas of the Radiology field, my job was to make my patients feel as comfortable as possible in a completely unfamiliar setting, drinking horrible barium drinks, getting stuck with needles, etc. That required very high levels of customer service skills. Not only for the patients, but to referring physicians, Radiologists, nurses, patient's family members, and vendors. I made my patients feel like they were a part of my family. I was told by many of my patients that they came back to which ever place I was working just to have me be their tech. It was not at all out of the ordinary for patients to hug me before walking out the door. High School Diploma : 05/1972
