Meet our Team

Tessa has been a Sonographer at Richmond Hospital for one year, working in general and cardiac ultrasound. She loves the investigative nature of the role, and enjoys finding evidence to support a diagnosis. “I love how dynamic ultrasound is – every patient is different, every exam is different, and there are so many mysteries to solve! This keeps my job interesting, and continues to challenge me,” says, Tessa.

As a new sonographer, Tessa wanted to work in an environment that would support her professional growth in both general ultrasound and echocardiography. “At Richmond Hospital I am able to perform a wide variety of exams, as well as help a range of inpatients, outpatient, and emergency patients. I had a clinical placement at Richmond Hospital as a student and was able to see how supportive and positive the work environment is. The team here is excellent – knowledgeable, skilled, and collaborative – and they manage to have a good time through it all as well! I feel supported because management and the booking teams ensure workloads are appropriate for each team member, which can be so important for a new sonographer like myself. My colleagues are always available to share their thoughts or offer guidance as needed.”

Katrina is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologist at St. Paul’s Hospital. Upon completion of the Magnetic Resonance diploma program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Katrina took a position with Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) and relocated to downtown Vancouver, and hasn’t looked back since!

Katrina says that the “most inspiring thing is that the exciting moments don’t stop. I love the feeling that comes from emerging from a challenging situation successfully”.  Whether it is a newly introduced protocol, working with a patient that has an uncommon implanted device, or helping a patient to complete their scan, “there will always be something that comes up that my MRI in Practice textbook did not prepare me for. It is rewarding to collaborate with my team to find solutions to scenarios we haven’t seen before and come away with great quality images when the outcome may have initially appeared uncertain”, she says.

Dhelov is a Senior Clerk on the Medical Imaging team at Lion’s Gate Hospital (LGH). She has worked with Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) at various worksites including Diamond Health Care Centre, GF Strong, UBC Hospital, and most recently at LGH. “Every site has provided me with the opportunity to learn a unique set of skills. This has been very rewarding professionally and personally to my growth and development in my career,” she says.

Playing a part in helping people and positively affecting their lives was the motivating factor for Dehlov when applying to her current role. “I love my job because it is always changing, always evolving, and I get front row seats along with an amazing group of people to turn the vision into reality,” she says.
