MY STORY

I am the CEO of Inner Images, Inc., a mobile mammography business serving all of California. Currently, my company serves over 40,000 women a year through the Every Woman Counts Program. I am also the founder and executive director of A Vision of Health, a non-profit organization developed to utilize a full field digital mobile mammography coach and disease prevention programs through nutrition and exercise. I have been a Cancer Activist for over thirty years and understands that groundbreaking research can make a difference in all forms of cancer.

In 2008, 2009, and 2011 I went to multiple cities in China with the American Cancer Society to assist in their Annual Breast Imaging Training in cooperation with the International Asian Breast Disease Society. Over 600 family Practice Physicians were trained in Clinical Breast Exam and Breast Care.

In 2015 UCLA World Medicine collaborated with the National Consortium of Breast Centers with a week training for Clinical Breast Exam Training. I graduated from Fullerton College with a degree in radiologic technology and received my training at St. Jude Hospital in Fullerton, CA. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Health and Safety from California State University at Los Angeles and has a teaching credential in Health and Related Sciences from California State University at Long Beach. I have been a member of the National Consortium of Breast Centers since 1994 serving as a Trustee, on the Planning and Advisory Committees, and currently a CBE instructor.

I Wear Turquoise (IWT) is an American Lung Association LUNG FORCE campaign, engaging leaders throughout Southern California.

In American Lung Association’s pursuit to ensure lung health for all, its research funding is hard at work during this outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A recent discovery is showing great promise for a potential vaccine. Our lung helpline and website continue to be trusted sources of information and support. Reliable resources, including guidance on how to protect yourself and your family from becoming infected, are available during this unprecedented health threat. It is important that this crucial work continue. We invite you to be a part of the solution and help prevent against future pandemics TODAY.

The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE launched five years ago, uniting women and their loved ones to stand together and fight lung cancer. Today we invite everyone to join the commitment to lung health and for clean, healthy and livable communities for all. Leaders from throughout Southern California have joined us to become IWT Ambassadors to lead the charge toward a cleaner, healthier future.
