1. Why do you want to serve as a trustee?
I feel that it is important to participate/serve on a committee that shapes the future of our profession
2. How would you define your role as trustee in the context of the current Board job descriptions?
My role as a trustee would be to actively participate in all meetings, conference calls, and cast my votes as required of the position
3. What are the unique skills you possess that would benefit you in your tenure as a BOT member? How did you develop those skills?
I have been active in the education of Neurodiagnostic Technologists over many years, as both a Clinical Instructor/Program Director, and most recently as a mentor. I am an experienced leader, having held positions at multiple levels.
4. What qualities do you feel are important for a BOT member to possess? What experiences have helped you to develop these qualities?
Being a strategic thinker, and having the ability to see the bigger picture is an imperative to progress. Sometimes, it is necessary to disagree, but this must occur respectfully if there is to be a resolution. Maintaining focus and paying attention, especially when a topic or meeting runs long is also crucial to the success of the team. I have mastered these skills over the years in various leadership roles.
5. ASET is actively working to promote increased membership benefits, advocacy, and offer multiple educational opportunities. What other important STRATEGIC goals would you have for ASET if elected?
While there are numerous opportunities for established Technologists, our profession is facing an ongoing crisis with regard to recruitment and education of new Technologists. One strategic goal is to entice high school and first year college students, as well as CNAs and other first level healthcare personnel to consider Neurodiagnostics, by increasing the awareness of the profession.
Another strategic goal would be to strengthen the alliances between Professional Societies, including ABRET, NAEC, ACNS and AES.
