Amy Mayhew, LVT: I graduated from MSU in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology. After working in a private practice for 2 years, I accepted a job at Oakland Veterinary Referral Services where I was employed for over 15 years. During this time, I worked very closely with Dr. Cheryl Rice in internal medicine and developed an interest in ultrasound. I completed my certificate of proficiency in soft tissue ultrasound with WAVE in December 2018. The objective of this program was to become a proficient and confident soft tissue sonographer, by immersion in soft tissue ultrasound over a 3-month period. Since this time, I’ve worked in a private practice utilizing my comprehensive abdominal ultrasound skills. In November 2020 I returned and completed my certificate of proficiency in echocardiography. I am dedicated to making these advanced diagnostic tools more readily available. In my spare time, my family and I love camping near the Great Lakes and spending time with our many rescued animals in the “Mayhew Zoo”.
