Obergfell earned her law degree from the University of Louisville School of Law (Louisville, Kentucky) and has a bachelor’s degree in health service management from Indiana University’s School of Medicine (Indianapolis, Indiana). She also has an associate of science degree in radiologic sciences from Indiana University—Fort Wayne and a certificate in radiologic technology from Parkview Memorial Hospital (Fort Wayne, Indiana).
ARRT’s other officers for the coming year are:

- Secretary/Treasurer—Steve Herrmann, R.T.(R)(M)(ARRT), CRA, FASRT
They will serve through the end of ARRT’s Board meeting in July 2017.

A sixth technologist is nominated from a professional membership society identified by ARRT based on its current needs.
