As I reflect on my time as President of the SDMS and SDMS Foundation Board, I am thankful for your support and overwhelmed by your dedication to your patients. You stepped up during a critical and significant time in modern medical history and I am so proud to be identified with you as a sonographer.
The easier course of action would have been to step back and let the COVID-19 pandemic run its course, but instead you persevered. Sonographers working in hospital settings provided crucial services to patients, including those critically ill with COVID-19. Sonographers working in outpatient and clinic environments provided vital services when there was so much uncertainty as well as a lack of available PPE. Sonography educators faced the challenge of transitioning to teaching remotely to ensure the continued supply of highly trained and qualified new sonographers.
I’ve always known and believed that sonographers are awesome, but during my term as the SDMS and SDMS Foundation President, you put it on full display for all to see.
I will transition into the role of Past President on the SDMS and SDMS Foundation Board at the 2021 SDMS Annual Conference in October. Catherine Rienzo, MS, RDMS, RT(R), FSDMS will step into the role of SDMS and SDMS Foundation President. She shares my commitment to advancing the sonography profession and my passion for volunteering and mentorship.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve. I look forward to our continued collaborations on behalf of sonographers.
With sincere gratitude from the depths of my heart,
