I first happened upon Nuclear Medicine Technology when I was looking for a focus to the Chemistry degree I was originally pursuing. The college I attended listed the program in the college catalog. As I read the description I thought it was the perfect mix of chemistry, technology and patient care.
Throughout the program my passion for the field grew dramatically. The day I knew I was in the right field came as a mixed blessing. My car had broken down and I had to wake up at 4 AM to walk six miles to clinical and was excited about it. I knew then that I had found the right profession. That excitement gave me the energy to continue my 6 mile pedestrian commute to and from clinical for three months. That same excitement is still there and drives my passion to teach about a profession that I love so much.
