This program gave me the protocol to follow and has taught me how to be a great ultrasound technician. This is the stepping stone to get me there.

I think back at my little freshman self, trying to throw the shot put, and then where I am now, and I know there was a point to all of this. I am so blessed and so thankful for all the opportunities that Widener has given me.
