Chairman of the Board: Jennifer Hall Zuniga, 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.

When I began my education, I wanted to study dental hygiene. My counselor suggested I spend a day observing radiologic technology at Hurley in Flint. One hour into my day on the job and I knew my career path had forever changed! I became registered in 1998 and hold advanced registries in CT and Mammography. I am currently employed at Beaumont in CT. In 2011, I graduated from the ASRT Leadership Academy. I hold a masters degree from MSU and was awarded MSRT Tech of the Year in 2015. I love what I do and and I get to learn something new everyday from the profession that has stolen my heart!
