Heron was nominated by Advanced Imaging Administrator Josh Laberee.

“In the three years she has been with me, she has gone from being an RT doing only X-rays to being fully licensed in CT and MRI,” noted Laberee. “She was born to do what she is doing, taking care of every patient like family. Her constant positivity is infectious, while her attention to detail on her exams and image quality is superb.”
