I graduated from Southeast technical Institute with an associate’s degree in Nuclear Medicine and immediately started my career at Sioux Valley (Sanford) Hospital. I worked as a  Nuclear medicine technologist/ leadership for 18 years and last June I transitioned out of patient care and leadership and took a role back at Sanford in the clinical informatics department.
