This month we are highlighting Bryan Williams, one of our Ultrasound Consultants. Bryan brings wisdom, humor, and encouragement to our team. As he teaches medical professionals in the pregnancy help setting, they benefit greatly as they gain knowledge and inspiration. Bryan has a desire to help others learn the skill of imaging life so they can in turn show life to those they encounter in their pregnancy help center.
Where did you grow up and go to school?
I grew up in Mtn Grove MO. A small town near Springfield, MO. I went to a hospital based x-ray and ultrasound school at CoxHealth in Springfield, MO. I completed my business degree from Evangel University. I completed my MHA at Webster University in St. Louis, MO.
Share with us about your family.
I have been married to my wife Lindsay for 18 years. We have two daughters. Addy is 12, and Izzy is 6.
Tell us about what brought you to Heartbeat International.
I was brought to HB because of my desire to train. The story is long, but I met Cindi Boston at the center in Springfield, MO when I volunteered and trained nurses there. She offered our names up when HB began to think about starting their own training.
What do you enjoy most about your role as Ultrasound Consultant for Heartbeat International?
I get so much joy when I get to teach at trainings. My cup gets filled at each training event. This literally gives me the energy I need to go back to my other job at the hospital with joy and renewed efforts.
What do you love most about ultrasound?
The ability to see life and make an impact in people’s lives.
Tell us about sharing your love of ultrasound with new nurses in the pregnancy help setting.
OB is not something that I really wanted to do. It is something that God pushed me to do. I really enjoy the ability to train others so they can be equipped to do the work God has called them to do.
Where else do you work and what is your role in that setting?
I work at CoxHealth in Springfield MO. I’m the Administrative Director of Neuro and Cardiovascular Services.
What are your favorite things to do?
Spend time with my family, fish, and run.
What else would you like to share?
I’m extremely humbled by the people who do this job every day. I get to play a role part-time, but the people who do this on a regular basis are doing the real work. They are dedicating their lives to serve the ones that cannot speak for themselves.
