Johns Hopkins Physicians
( JHH physicians are independent contractors and not employees of Cardiovascular Specialists of Frederick.)
I am a graduate of Mo Co with an Associate’s Degree. I love cardiovascular nursing and have been with CSOF since 2000. I work directly with patients, whether assisting the physician with their oﬃce visit to spending time reviewing instructions. I am a patient advocate.
I have been employed by CSOF since 1999, as Technical Director of the Echo/Vascular Departments. I am a Registered Cardiac Diagnostic Sonographer, Registered Vascular Technologist and National Registered Paramedic. Prior to CSOF, I was employed by Frederick Memorial Hospital for ten years, receiving awards for service excellence. I enjoy boating in the Cheseapeake Bay and relaxing with my wife and two sons.
A graduate of Harrisburg Community College with an Associate Degree in Nuclear Technology and Williamsport Hospital School of Nursing with a diploma in professional nursing, I have an extensive background in patient care and healthcare management which provided a natural transition to Director of the CSOF Nuclear Cardiology Lab. I have been working for CSOF since 2004 and became director in 2015. I emphasize and facilitate a patient centered approach to the completion of the cardiac diagnostic imaging studies.
I lead a team comprised of me, 3 staff nuclear technologists, and several registered nurses specially trained to monitor and care for patients undergoing cardiac stress testing in the CSOF lab. I also am responsible for maintaining the CSOF nuclear cardiology lab accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.
