Biography:

After completing her undergrad at UBC and wandering the globe for a year Amanda entered the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at BCIT in 1992.  Upon graduation she was lucky enough to find a permanent part-time position as a Sonographer at BC Women’s Centre for Prenatal Diagnosis and Treatment (CPDT as it was called in those days).  She became the department’s (now called MAP, Maternal Ambulatory Program) Clinical Instructor in 2004 and has been scheduling and teaching hundreds of ultrasound students from a wide range of disciplines and programs ever since.  In addition to teaching and scanning, Amanda is currently researching the way we measure the fetal lateral ventricle with ultrasound.  She is happy when she can ride her bike to work without getting completely soaked and then return home unscathed to her husband and 3 teenagers.
