As an alumna of Oregon Tech, Leah has earned a Bachelor of Science in Vascular Technology ('03) as well as a Master of Science in Allied Health ('18). She fulfilled her clinical externship requirement in the Bronx, New York at Montefiore Medical Center, and began her Vascular career in the San Francisco Bay Area. Working with Mint Medical, she functioned as a staff sonographer, then technical director of the vascular laboratory at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara for 11 years. Leah also volunteers with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) as Vice-Chair of the ARDMS Council. She continues to consult in the field as an invited speaker and provides workshops for practicing sonographers interested in performing advanced vascular exams.
Outside of the classroom, Leah enjoys keeping up with her two children, traveling, and doing just about anything outdoors. Fun fact: Leah was an athletic and academic All-American softball player for the Hustlin' Owls in her undergrad years!
