I began my career in the health field by becoming a certified personal trainer by
AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) in 1993. At about the same time
I began taking prerequisite classes at the Community College of Rhode Island for
the Physical Therapist Assistant program.
In 1996, I was accepted at Newbury College in Brookline, MA and began the Physical
Therapist Assistant program. While attending classes at Newbury, I was employed by
the college as a tutor for kinesiology. I graduated Cum Laude from Newbury College
in 1998 with an A.A.S. degree. I was also elected into the Who's Who Amongst Students
in American Universities and Colleges for 1997-1998. I took my licensing test in
Rhode Island and successfully received my license as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
I worked as a Physical Therapist Assistant in the acute, skilled nursing and outpatient
settings. I have extensive experience co-treating with Occupational Therapists and
Occupational Therapist Assistants on a wide variety of patients with varying health
In 2001, I enrolled into the Radiography program at St. Petersburg College. I graduated
in 2003 with an A.A.S. degree in radiography and earned the Mallinckrodt Award. I
took the national registry by the ARRT and obtained a General Radiographer's license
from the state of Florida. I also successfully completed two MRI courses offered
by St. Petersburg College.
In 2003 my radiographer instructor and now business partner, John Fleming, inspired
me to create a company that offered high quality continuing education units at an
affordable price. This resulted in the creation of SCS Continuing Education.
I am currently the manager of medical imaging for a health system in the Tampa Bay
Area and hold a master’s degree in business management.
I graduated from the St. Petersburg College (SPC) Radiography Program in Pinellas
Park, Florida in December of 1985. I have been employed by SPC since May of 1987
and I am currently the Radiography Program Director.
I completed a Master of Education Degree from the University of South Florida in
December of 1998 and I have also passed the American Registry of Radiologic Technology’s
Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging certificate examinations.
Three Phase CEUs has been in existence since December of 2001. The motivation for
establishing my company was in response to my graduates having to pay up to $10 and
sometimes more per hour of continuing education. My research indicated that most
companies consistently charged top dollar for CEUs and that there were not many options
for radiographers to choose from. I knew that there had to be a way to produce quality
educational materials at a reasonable price and hence the creation of Three Phase
CEUs. With your continued support, it is my intention to continue to provide radiographers
with an affordable option to satisfy their continuing educational needs.
