Ellen Pinkston Healthcare careers mean success:
Ellen Pinkston, Telemetry Monitoring Technician

Ellen Pinkston always loved science and helping people. After shadowing her pediatrician in high school, she knew her calling: healthcare. While initially majoring in biology at Boston University, life took a turn and she returned to Michigan to enroll in cardiovascular technology. While studying, Ellen landed her current position as a Telemetry Monitoring Technician at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. She monitors cardiac patients, vigilantly tracking their EKG rhythms, alerting medical staff to any adverse changes.

Ellen knows her expertise makes a difference to other people’s lives ― and hers. “Being able to feel a connection to something bigger than I do is the huge payoff in my job. My input allows nurses and physicians to hone in their assessments and make the best decisions for patients. I guess you could say that my small impact eases fears of patients.”

Ellen’s career is beating strong because she chose a healthcare field.
