The learning, networking and mentoring relationships that form at conferences are incredibly valuable to members at the beginning of their careers in radiology, and our experienced members appreciate this.
Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
Rose Marie Miller, an office manager for Coastal Radiology Associates, PLLC, in New Bern, N.C., is the winner of a special RBMA U travel scholarship made possible through a private donation by another member.
“Awarding travel scholarships that allow more up-and-coming radiology professionals to attend RBMA conferences is part of our important role in developing the next generation of radiology business leaders,” said Daphne Gawronski, RBMA Director of Communications and Development. “The learning, networking and mentoring relationships that form at conferences are incredibly valuable to members at the beginning of their careers in radiology, and our experienced members appreciate this. The fact that this additional scholarship was made possible through one member’s generous gift is but one example of how our members strive to help each other.”
Miller, 51, is married and the mother of two sons who now attend college at North Carolina State University and Belmont Abby College. After helping to raise her family as a working mother, she is eager to now focus on advancing her career.
“I was very excited to win,” she said. “My career development has up until this point mostly involved working full time, raising my children and putting them through college. It is exciting to now pursue rounding out my formal education and training. The RBMA helps your career and opens up so many doors for you. I want to thank Coastal Radiology Associates for supporting the RBMA U online classes I’ve taken and allowing me to attend RBMA conferences. With sons still in college, the scholarship is definitely a big help and allows me to give back to the practice.”
Miller’s job as office manager for Coastal Radiology makes her responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations and activities of the practice. One of her goals for her education is to become an even stronger team member at the practice and use what she learns to become a better manager and mentor herself. Just as others helped her, she wants to help the employees she now supervises grow in their careers.
Prior to her current position, Miller was clerical manager with a dermatology group in New Bern, N.C., for more than eight years and assisted in opening and staffing of the new clinic as well as managing the clerical staff. She also assisted in opening New Bern Outpatient Diagnostic Center and worked there as an office manager for 11 years.
Miller is part of a certified pet therapy team and volunteers at Carolina East Medical Center and assisted living homes on weekends along with her 101-pound therapy dog Bella Moose.
