Katie White, CNMT, RT(N)(CT): Meeting Planner
My name is Katie White. I was born and raised in Charleston, SC. I started off my college career at the University of South Carolina but transferred to Armstrong Atlantic University in Savannah, Ga to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Nuclear Medicine. In Savannah I started my career at a cardiology office where I was a technologist for 4 years. When my husband received a job opportunity in Charleston, SC we were fortunate to move back. I have been at the Medical University of South Carolina for almost 4 years now and I work mostly in the PET/CT. At MUSC I enjoy working in all of our departments, I enjoy the variety of scans we get to do as well as the new therapies. Nuclear Medicine has been a great career for me and I'm excited for what is to come in our field.
