Employee Spotlight: Easing Anxiety One Mammogram at a Time

Mar 03, 2015

A mammogram shouldn’t make you nervous or anxious, especially when there are friendly, experienced mammographers like Kim. A registered imaging technologist in mammography and x-ray, Kim has worked at The Breast Center of Suburban Imaging for more than 15 years. 

“I always knew I wanted to go into the medical field and I wanted to help people,” said Kim. “In school, anatomy/physiology were always my favorite subjects.”

Mammography is the best tool to screen for breast cancer and women should have an annual screening mammogram starting at age 40. Kim offers specialized care that is needed during a mammogram experience. Said patient Rose, who had a mammogram with Kim: “I was a little anxious about this. No need to be. [Kim] was kind and understanding. It was a good experience.”


Originally from Benson, MN, Kim graduated from the School of Radiologic Technology at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar, MN, in 1995. She is a member of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.

The Breast Center of Suburban Imaging is a great place to work; we have highly-experienced radiologists who provide top notch care to all patients,” she said. “We have compassionate staff who work as a team to provide the best possible care to our patients. I feel proud to be part of this team,” Kim exclaimed.

Heidi Marthaler, clinic manager of The Breast Center of Suburban Imaging, said, “Kim’s calming nature and endless supply of compassion are truly her greatest assets – these qualities make such a difference for patients who are anxious about their exam results.”
