After several years as a medical technologist at Union Memorial Hospital, I entered public health as Laboratory Coordinator for the Baltimore City Health Department - Bureau of Disease Control. This position lead to a career opportunity related to my professional focus... medical laboratory training. My professional goal is to help others understand how and why various laboratory procedures are performed in the identification of microorganisms commonly associated with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and/or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) . As a result, this opportunity has lead to additional opportunities in laboratory consulting, international health, internet technology, 3D technology, and HIV prevention (another story in itself). The laboratory consulting lead to assignments as a national medical lab instructor, and an international medical consultant. Various "field" assignments enabled me to work with other laboratorians in Turkey, Kenya, Egypt, and Uganda. In the late 80s, I participated in my first two-way transatlantic (USA to Egypt) distance training class via telescript. An exciting experience! These assignments were challenging but rewarding experiences. Plus they prepared me for future career opportunities. My educational and professional goal as an ASCP-certified medical technologist has indeed lead to unlimited professional and personal opportunities. Some qualities that Medical Technologists should possess include analytical minds, interpretative skills, good observation, and troubleshooting skills. It is felt that these qualities and my medical technology training prepared me for a "career path" beyond the imagination of a "very shy" student who decided upon a laboratory science career in the tenth grade of high school. Over the years, I thanked my biology teacher, Mrs. Dorman for the "MT career booklet". I have embraced each opportunity to connect, reach, serve, and share. "For this is The path that was given..."
