Major: Vascular Technology Hometown: Grants Pass, OR
I chose to attend Oregon Tech because it was one of the only schools in the country that offered my major. The fact that it is only two hours from where I grew up was an added bonus.
To me, working in vascular ultrasound is like solving a puzzle or brain teaser. You gather all of the information you can and put it together to see the big picture. It makes work interesting and intellectually stimulating.
I would love to work full time in an accredited lab at a university hospital. I did my externship at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA, and a job there or at a place similar to it would be ideal.
When I was living off campus in Klamath Falls I liked to go to the local restaurants with my friends in search of the best burger in the city. If it’s still around, go to Dagwoods.
I enjoyed seeing the poet/comedian Jon Goode perform. It was an event the Diversity Center organized and there was a reception in the Diversity Center after the show where you could talk to Jon. It was a blast.
