She has been a Registered/Certified Veterinary Technician since graduating from Fairmont State University in Fairmont, West Virginia in 1996 with an Associate's Degree in Applied Science.

This has given her exposure and knowledge in a variety of sonographic modalities, including, vascular, abdominal, OB/Gyn, and breast.
