Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Medicine Technician, University of Findlay
I came to the University of Findlay (UF) in 2004. I am the Assistant Professor and Clinical Coordinator for the Diagnostic Services
Department, which includes the Nuclear Medicine Institute (NMI) and Positron
Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) programs. My responsibilities
include teaching, advising, mentoring, coordinating clinical placements, and
performing clinical site visits in nearly 100 affiliated clinical facilities
located in 15 states. It is exciting to have the opportunity to educate the
next generation, not only in the classroom at the University, but also in the
clinical phase. Seeing a student take the information they’ve learned in the
classroom and put it into “practice” in the clinical setting is very rewarding.
Being a UF and NMI graduate, I feel that I can relate more
effectively to what the students are experiencing during their time here.
Having been a student and now a faculty member offers a unique opportunity to
relate to and assist students.
Prior to coming to the University of Findlay, I worked as a
Nuclear Medicine Technologist at Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney, OH and
later at the Smith Clinic in Marion, OH. I worked as a staff technologist at
both of these facilities. While working at the Smith Clinic in Marion, I helped
train NMI students complete the clinical phase of their education. I also
worked a brief per diem position at Lonesome Pine Hospital in Big Stone Gap,
My passions are sports, particularly baseball and football.
I am a big Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Indians fan. I also enjoy reading
and doing a variety of outdoor activities such as softball, camping and
landscaping. I am a member of the College First Church of God and am involved
in a number of church-related activities. I serve on a variety of UF committees
and am involved in a number of professional organizations, which I have listed
I am married and have four children - Wyatt
and Scarlet; and Johnathon and Hilary.
