Why do you want to serve as a trustee? To make a positive impact in developing the world of neurodiagnostics and neuromonitoring.
How would you define your role as trustee? As a trustee, I believe, we can voice our opinions, make a positive impact, gain a better outlook of the hurdles faced by our profession, be able to brainstorm with experienced professionals.
How would you define the role of the Board of Trustees? The board of trustees contains professionals with the aim to develop and better the profession of neurodiagnostics and neuromonitoring.
Describe any experience or skills you have gained in a leadership role with other organizations that you think will assist you as an ASET board member? In my experience as a leader, having had the opportunity to be on the technologist and managerial sides, has given me a better understanding of the difficulties faced in the field and off the field. I believe this will help in bridging the gap that may exist and thus help in overcoming some hurdles towards progress of the profession.
What qualities do you have that would make you a good trustee? I am always looking for a meaningful way I can contribute towards the field of neurodiagnostics. Being able to listen, understand the disconnect, look at the big picture and perseverance in addition to my knowledge are some of the things I believe would help in this position.
What are your goals for ASET if elected? I will aim to increase professional education and certification in this field. Will strive to expand the reach of the profession by making it more accessible for professional educators to be able to share their knowledge.
What, specifically, are the changes taking place in the profession that ASET should be attentive to and what role can/should the Society take? There is an increased interest in the field of neurodiagnostics but not many avenues to gain technical skills, experience and certification. There is a shortfall of certified professionals or quality professionals who will be dedicated to the field. I believe providing more avenues to gain technical skills, participate in research, work on publications should be provided to develop and renew the interest in the field of neurodiagnostics.
