Non-Traditional Officer Nancy Christensen

Meet Nancy

Year in school:  Junior

Major/ Program:  Echocardiography

Hometown:  Portland, Oregon

Biography:  I grew up in a few little towns in Washington but ultimately ended up graduating from high school in a very small town in Montana.  Malta, Montana. I ultimately went to Washington State University right out of high school, with a degree in Psychology. I was a drug and alcohol counselor for 4 years.  I graduated from college, had a birthday and a baby in one month after I completed my education. I was married shortly after that.  I soon decided that the field I chose was not optimal for raising my daughter.  I left the field and pushed papers in a law firm for the next 20 years.  In that time, I had another daughter and when they were both out of high school we divorced.  I decided after my kids were all in college, including my new son-in-law, that I had a higher calling in life.  I researched Sonography and ultimately ended up in Echocardiography.  I could not be more pleased and honored with my acceptance to this school and program.  After the grueling first year of Cardiovascular Physics and passing the physics portion of my board exams, I decided it was time to get involved in the school.  Brenda, the Non-traditional officer from last year suggested I apply for the position.  It is a great match.  I work on and off campus now and maintain wonderful friendships with great people from ASOIT and Echo. The icing on the cake in this great adventure of life, is that I have a wonderful grandbaby.
