Hi, I’m Emily and here’s a little bit about me and the role I play on the Block Imaging team.
Growing up in Africa has allowed me to see first-hand how the lack of imaging and interventional medicine impacts entire communities. What an awesome opportunity to work with technology that has the power to change and save lives!
Some things about me:
My husband and I are a blended family of 8!
I grew up in Kenya, East Africa, and attended a boarding school from 4th grade on. Africa is in my blood and I am so thankful for the opportunity to grow up in a different culture. I returned to the U.S. to attend Auburn University on an ROTC Navy Scholarship.
I LOVE college football and am a die-hard SEC fan! I am an Auburn Tiger through and through (WAR EAGLE) and am surrounded by Spartans and Wolverines up here in Michigan who don’t appreciate SEC football!
My ongoing battle with stage 4 cancer (that continues- multiple rounds of chemo and radiation and now immune therapy) have given me the personal opportunity to be IN the machines we sell globally and benefit from the diagnostic capabilities. It has given me increased appreciation and awareness of the need for everyone to have access in order to be able to live and fight whatever battles come.
Before moving to Michigan, as an adult I have lived in 7 states (even Hawaii).
Besides spending time with my family, I also love to travel and experience all sorts of adventures.
There is just something about the mountains…
I want to live a life with purpose and intentionality and it will be EPIC.
