CEAI’s Women in HTM Spotlight this month is on Norma Hopkins from Franciscan Saint James in Olympia Fields. Norma has been in the HTM industry for 13 years! Her expertise revolves around the Surgery Department, especially anesthesia machines. Outside of the biomed shop, she loves to travel, fish, and take pictures.
As far as professional goals, Norma said she would like to become more familiar with imaging, as it pertains to the Surgery Department. She also said that ultrasound is on her list of goals, with TEE being her main focus. She hopes to be trained on ultrasound this year and c-arms in the near future – awesome! Thank you for all of your hard work Norma!
