Austin Emergency Center, Radiology Supervisor
What do you love most about your job?
As a radiology tech, I love the critical thinking and fast-paced environment. Every day is something new and you never know what or who is going to come in requiring our care. I also value the teamwork displayed in the healthcare environment. We all play a very important role in delivering the best patient care, and I love when everyone works together to please the patient to the fullest of our ability.
Why did you pursue a career in medicine?
When a patient comes into the emergency room requiring care, it becomes a mystery that needs solved. What are their symptoms and how are we going to help them? Radiology plays an important role in helping the physician diagnosis the patient. I like to think of it as an important piece of the puzzle. I also think we are “chosen” for the medical field. Not everyone can handle the blood and critical thinking. And since I can, I must pursue.
What’s special and unique about your practice?
Austin Emergency Center is a privately-owned, free-standing emergency room that provides concierge-level emergency care. It is the first locally-owned center in Austin. There are three locations located on South Lamar, Far West, and Anderson Mill. Our practice is unique because we are able to provide the same emergency services as a hospital-based emergency room, but without the wait. Our patients receive care as soon as they walk in the door with a wait time of less than five minutes. With our fully functioning lab, imaging services, and outstanding patient care, we go above and beyond with offering our Austin local community the best healthcare experience possible.
Whats your idea of an ideal date?
I’m a huge Pearl Jam fan. I am also very spontaneous. Let’s travel somewhere new, try some food we’ve never had before, go to a brewery, and then go to a Pearl Jam concert.
What do you look for in a romantic partner?
My perfect partner would be someone that is sincere, smart, spontaneous, enjoys travel, shares mutual interests, and most importantly, makes me laugh. A good sense of humor is the best quality. Some height definitely wouldn’t be a bad thing.
