Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a local educator who has been in the teaching field for eight years. My passion began with high school-aged children and has expanded over the years to include adults. My interests are nature photography (see some of my photos on Facebook), culinary play, health and wellness, being active outdoors, animals, quantum physics and many other areas. My curiosity about life and people keeps me young at heart.
What service or product do you offer?
Clinical thermography is my most recent adventure. It involves a specialized infra red camera that looks for abnormal heat patterns in the body. It is all about early detection. While popular for breast health screening, my company, Radiant Health Imaging specialize in full body work for men or women. The first sign in the body that something is wrong is a temperature. Thermography works by detecting those physiological and functional changes years before other methods (which may result in invasive procedures) without the harmful effects of radiation. It is also cost effective, private and there is no physical contact.
What got you involved in your business and how long have you been involved?
I had my first breast scan and thought, I have to learn how to do this. An opportunity came in March of 2010 and so I jumped at the chance to do some intensive training with the owner of Radiant Health Imaging, Pam Ryerse. It has been one of the most rewarding ventures I have been involved in.
What is your favorite part of what you do?
After I carefully take the images, I love to help put together the pieces of people’s health history so that the thermologist can interpret the scans and give the client the direction to correct the pain or inflammation before it results in an invasive procedure to correct a problem. I want to educate people to the idea that there are other possibilities or options.
How would I go about obtaining your services or products?
You may make an appointment by calling either call our toll-free number at 866-240-9659 or our Eau Claire office number at 715-318-4250.
Do you have an office or storefront? If so, what are the hours the public is welcome? Radiant Health Imaging has an Eau Claire office at 2722 London Road in the Center for Healing Arts. Also, I am currently serving satellite offices in Appleton, Green Bay, and Shell Lake. See our website at http://www.radianthealthimaging.com for the addresses to our satellite offices.
What do you think is one of the most important things for a woman to know when going into business for themselves?
Anyone can do this with the right attitude. It takes a good amount of determination to find the resources to succeed by getting out there talking to people and asking questions. But if you persevere, it gets more and more rewarding with each new person you meet.
Are there any tips you would like to share about balancing life and work?
Don’t forget to nourish or reward yourself for your hard work. If you give up your family, friends, or other passions you will have regrets. For some it takes a specific schedule to include the fun. Be gentle if you go overboard here or there and just start again. Guilt can be debilitating, so don’t let it! Just move forward.
Do you have any upcoming things (promotions, events, etc) you would like to let us know about? We always feature a buddy promotion. If you come with a friend to your appointment, you receive $10 off a breast scan or $25 off a full body scan. We have couples who take advantage of this special.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Life is a string of miracles waiting to happen. We just have to recognize that they can happen to anyone, anywhere and at any time.
