About Wendy Sweatt

EDUCATION

I received my Associate's Degree in Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) at Jefferson State and began my lab career at what is now St. Vincent's East. After a few years of being out of school, I went back to school and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Allied Health from UAB. This degree, plus my years of work experience, made me eligible to take the ASCP Medical Technologist (MT) exam. I received my Master's Degree from UAB in Clinical Laboratory Sciences in 2005. I started in September 2007 at UA in the Doctoral Program for Higher Education Administration and am currently working on my dissertation.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My only teaching experience has been at Jefferson State. I started teaching lab classes part time in 1997 and eventually lecture classes as well. I had worked full time at St. Vincent's East for more than 10 years, but began to enjoy teaching more. So when a full time position became available at Jeff State in 2002, I was happy to take it.

INTERESTS

I love to travel more than anything, and am going to try and hit all 50 states (and possibly other countries) before I die. I have been to 20 states so far- 30 to go! My interests are varied. I have tried most everything, including skeet shooting and skydiving, and am not particularly good at anything. I prefer to be outside and enjoy anything that I can do outdoors. As far as inside activities, I do like to read  mystery/crime novels. I enjoy movies but regular TV not so much, except for The Big Bang Theory.

FAMILY

As far as immediate family, I have one sister but both of my parents are deceased.

I got married in March of 2005 to my husband Tracy, who has two sons. Our daughter, Cadence, is six and has already informed me that I am "not cool".
