Virlene is a sonography instructor for Advanced Health Education Center where her expertise and ability to communicate make her popular with both Physicians and Sonographers taking advanced courses through AHEC. After completing her RT training at St. Phillips College in San Antonio, Texas, she went on to complete her ultrasound education at Houston Community College. Virlene has worked in many areas of ultrasound; including hospital settings, outpatient clinics, in management and in sales with General Electric healthcare as an applications specialist. Most jobs had an OB/GYN focus and in recent years, more specifically high risk obstetrics. All of this exposure to the different aspects of ultrasound helps her bring a varied perspective to her classes.
