Rising Star: Pamela Garrison

Rising Star: Pamela Garrison

By Erin Register

Rising Star: Pamela GarrisonBorn and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, California, Pamela Garrison, 35, had a unique educational experience at West Coast Ultrasound Institute – attending school with her sister. “I had the greatest study buddy, my sister,” said Garrison, “We decided to go to school for ultrasound at the same time. I’m a registered diagnostic medical sonographer (RDMS) in both OB and abdomen and moved to Arizona for my student externship, where I had one of the best ultrasound mentors.”

Garrison was hired by Banner Imaging as an ultrasound tech and, 12 years later, continues at the same place of employment. She is currently the associate ultrasound manager at Banner Imaging.

ICE learned more about this Rising Star in a recent interview.

Rising Star: Pamela GarrisonQ: Why did you choose to get into this field?

A: The ultrasound field really piqued my interest. I originally went into ultrasound because I loved the OB part of it, but I’m so grateful that my career took me to the path I’m on in an outpatient imaging center where I get to do a variety of exams.

Q: What do you like most about your position?

A: In my current position as an ultrasound leader, I love that I get to watch the techs on my team grow and develop their skills. I’m also a leader of our engagement team, and it’s motivating to know that one team can have such a powerful impact on an entire company. Through my years with this company, I’m thankful for the leaders who have pushed me harder and helped me get to where I am today.

Q: What interests you the most about the imaging field?

A: The technology is always changing, there isn’t a day that goes by that you don’t learn or see something new, and I love that.

Q: What has been your greatest accomplishment in your field thus far?

A: My greatest career accomplishment would have to be moving to another state to take on a whole new career after graduating. Now, 12 years later, I’m in a leadership role.

Q: What goals do you have for yourself in the next 5 years?

A: My goals for the next five years are to become a registered vascular technologist (RVT) and also get my CRA.
