1.) What is your position and role at Gillette? I am the Lead Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologist at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. My role is to help prep, coordinate, and scan patients in MRI. I also help with any questions or concerns that may come up with staff or patients regarding MRIs.
2.) Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? My favorite Gillette story was when a fellow tech and I were getting a patient ready for an MRI. We were in our control area with the patient’s sister and their interpreter. The young lady was carrying on and the interpreter shared that this girl thought I was my co-workers father – when in fact I was only three years older. We had a good laugh about it, and still do to this day. It’s the little things that make working with kids so fun.
3.) What are some of your hobbies outside of work? Going to Twins games, playing sports with friends and family, spending time with my wife and daughter, and pretty much anything else that involved being outside and active.
4.) Do you have any children or pets? I have a five-year-old hyperactive golden retriever named Penny, and a 16 month old daughter named Josie. I’m hoping they will keep each other busy soon, because they have way more energy than me!
5.) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I’ve always wanted to go to Scotland and Ireland. At this time of year (February) I would settle for anything warm and on a beach.
6.) What is one fun fact about you? Although it’s been a while since we have done it, a friend and I enjoy brewing our own beer.
