Why did you choose to come to UMR? I knew that pursuing my degree at UMR meant I would have the opportunity to learn from and train amongst some of the very best. But on top of that, I would spend every day learning from dedicated providers that exemplify what it looks like to live out Mayo Clinic's primary value, the needs of the patient come first. UMR allowed me to earn my Bachelors of Science in Health Professions while obtaining all didactic and clinical training through the Sonography program at Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences. Pursuing this opportunity to learn and train in the heart of Mayo Clinic was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I left with the very best education and training, a forever instilled patient-centered mindset and a massive network of people I still lean on to this day.

Is there a certain instructor that greatly impacted your time at UMR? Becky Madery, who is now the Sonography Program Director at MSHS. Becky's passion for ultrasound and her commitment to investing in the lives of her students was apparent in every lecture, lab and clinical day. She without a doubt played a role in shaping me into who I am today as a Sonographer and individual that chooses to put people and relationships at the center of everything I do.
