2015-16 President: Jennifer Hall, B.B.A., RT (R)
It is with great pleasure and honor I sit as your 2016 President for the MSRT. I have been in love with the Imaging Sciences since the age of 10, and 26 years later... Imaging remains my passion. I worked as a Radiologic Technologist for six years before becoming a Clinical Coordinator for Radiology at Baker College of Owosso, MI. For the past six years, I have been given the greatest opportunity to teach this glorious field to students who will become the future of our profession. The MSRT has provided me a path to give back to my profession, and I feel fortunate to be part of something so outstanding.
