Spotlight on Kesha Colton- MRI Director

Being able to help others was a passion for Kesha Colton before her days as an MRI Director. She once was fond of pursuing a career in social work. After working as a parent aid at DFCAS, she quickly found that her calling wasn't sociology. Feeling discouraged, Kesha sought advice from a friend working in Radiology, to shadow his work as an x-ray tech. Through this experience, Kesha rekindled her connection to help others in their life, so she changed her major to radiology technology.

In 2001, she started at Resurgens Orthopaedics as an x-ray tech. Intrigued with producing images for body diagnostics, Kesha decided to challenge herself by changing her job to MRI Technology. After endless hours of cross-training before and after hours at work, Kesha became an MRI Tech for four years. Quickly, she mastered her skills as an MRI tech and felt she needed more growth in her life, so she took on the leadership role. With her love for helping others, she wanted to continue to mentor others and establish a supportive environment for the MRI staff. In 2018, she was promoted to MRI Director. In her role, Kesha also helps with many projects and works with several executives in the company. Beyond her role as a Director, Kesha is a mother to two sons and enjoys spending time with them on the weekends.
