Debbie Miller

I attended the program when it was formerly at Holy Family Hospital and graduated in 1982. After graduation I worked for a year at St. Joseph's Hospital in Lewiston, ID. Then I had the opportunity to return to Holy Family as a staff technologist where I did general radiography, mammography, surgery and special procedures. In 1988 I became a part-time instructor/part-time staff technologist and taught algebra to the radiology students. By 1992 I knew I wanted to continue my career in education and began working towards my BS, which I received in 1996. 1996 was a significant year for myself and my career, I also became a full-time instructor in the clinical and didactic setting. When the previous program director retired in January 1999 I accepted the position and have remained as program director. In 2002 I began my quest for a master's degree in adult education, which I earned in 2005. Since 1999 I've seen the class sizes grow from 7-8 students to 21 students, increased the number of clinical sites and the program was transferred from Holy Family to Sacred Heart Medical Center in 2003 and on to Spokane Community College in 2005/6. Each year I am excited to see a graduating class move on to their next phase in life while a new class starts a new phase of a radiology student. The joy is in watching each student grow and learn as they become terrific technologists.

Personally, I am married and have two step-children. I enjoy bowling, camping, fishing, card games, and spending time with family and friends.

Kimmy Eikum

I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. I attended the Holy Family School of Radiology and graduated in 1990. I took my first job right after graduation as a radiology technologist at Holy Family Hospital. I worked in general radiology, surgery and mammography. I worked for Radiology Associates, an orthopedic office and at Fairchild Air Force base (doing mammograms) as a supplemental technologist through out the years. I became the lead mammography technologist in 1992. I began in the interventional/cardiac cath lab in 1995. I enjoyed working with the students at the Holy Family School of Radiology so much that in 1997 I helped out as a interim clinical instructor. In 1999, I became a part-time clinical instructor and in 2000 I took a full-time instructor position. In May of 2009, I received my BS in Advanced Radiology from Weber State University. I also currently work for Inland Imaging as a supplemental technologist which keeps my skills up-to-date and current.

Personally, I am married and have two children. I am very active in my kids' school and I am an officer in the Elks Lodge 228. My family and I enjoy the summer months at the lake and we try to travel as much as possible.

Helen Murphy

I was born in Bad Constand Germany. I am one of ten. I have six brothers and three sisters. I followed my dad into Radiology and attended the Holy Family School of Radiology and graduated in 1987. I have worked all over Spokane. I started at Radiology Associates and Rockwood clinic then I did some orthopedic work and worked for a Independent medical evaluation group and then ended up back to Radiology Associates who then merged with Inland Imaging in 1998. I was the team leader at their north office where I got to work with the students from Holy Family Hospital. I love working with them so much that when a job opened up at the school I applied. I have been with the school through its many changes. I also do supplemental work for SHMC and Inland Imaging.

Personally, I have one son in high school and one daughter in college. We enjoy skiing, going to the lake, and traveling whenever we get the chance.
