Ms. Styring attributes her success to perseverance and love for her profession. One day in high school, her class was taken to Morristown Memorial for career day, and she saw an x-ray of a hand. She became fascinated and wondered to herself how they made the image, provoking an interest that eventually flourished into a career.
After completing her academic efforts, Ms. Styring promptly secured a position in the hospital where she was born. It is her hope that her peers will remember her as someone who cared about her job and was competent and fun to work with. In the immediate future, she plans to retire in January 2024.
