In March of 2010, I was laid off from a company after fifteen years. Devastated by this life-changing event, I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. After researching different professions in the medical field, I decided to become an Ultrasound Technologist. After researching ultrasound programs in the Sacramento region, I found my home at Sacramento Ultrasound Institute and began my journey with them in February 2012. During this time of schooling, I felt a direct relationship with the staff at Sacramento Ultrasound Institute, and was also given the opportunity to volunteer with the Sutter Memorial Hospital Radiology Department. After graduating, SUI continued to support and guide me along the way.
