Over the past 16+ years I have been able to grow from a student to a seasoned Sonographer. Baylor, being a learning facility, has given me the opportunity to work with physicians, nurses, technologists and many others. Since BUMC (Baylor) is a transplant facility, I have had the opportunity to learn and become skilled at organ Doppler. Baylor is a 1000+ bed hospital. For the past two years I have been the Ultrasound Supervisor over-seeing a great group of Sonographers. As the supervisor, I divide my day into administrative and scanning patients. I provide help to my team by doing portable exams in our many ICUs, working in the ED when needed, assisting with kidney biopsies, training new students and residents. The hardest part of my job is the administrative side. I love being bedside providing patient care, probably due to my nursing background. I wish to be a full-time sonographer and leave the meeting/paperwork to management.
Wide range of pathology for learning
Too many meetings/paperwork.
