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.
