My name is Tosha Feldkamp. I was born at UC Medical Center which at the time was called General Hospital. I grew up on the westside of Cincinnati and reside there still. My favorite memories growing up all involve being out in nature, whether it was at one of the Great Parks of Cincinnati, my grandparents farm in Indiana, or even hiking in Hocking Hills State Park. I think Cincinnati is an ideal place to live because we have something that appeals to everyone from foodies and artists to nature enthusiasts.
I joined the medical field at the age of 22, in the Department of Radiology at the University of Cincinnati. Radiology is a unique field in that touches nearly every other field. Imaging drives treatment. I have worked in Radiology my entire career. I chose Cincinnati Children’s because of its stellar reputation and care of children. I love having even a small part in the training of future pediatric Radiologists. I brought my daughter to Children’s when she was younger and know the trust that parents place in our hands for the care of their kids.
When I am not working, I engage in several activities like volunteer Bible education, photography, painting, crochet, and reading. I read 25 books this year and would be hard pressed to choose a favorite. I am always up for a good book recommendation! My favorite pastime though is spending time with my family, playing games or having fun with my nieces and nephews.
Hello, my name is Angel Nguyen. I am a certified nuclear medicine and MRI technologist. I was born and raised in the Hamilton part of Cincinnati. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Fall of 2021 from the Advanced Medical Imaging Technology program.
I joined the medical field due to my interest in the imaging field, specifically MRI. It all started when I was a senior in high school. I toured an outpatient facility, and I was amazed by the huge MRI magnet and the various images that it took. I found it fascinating to play a part in making a difference in patients’ lives and help their well-being through imaging. At Cincinnati Children’s, I hope to play a part in improving health care for children through MRI research imaging. I am excited to become a part of the team and bring my experiences to Children’s.
My personal hobbies include singing, ice skating, playing PC games, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with my fiancé, family, and friends. As a child I used to take weekly ice-skating lessons for fun. Ice skating is such a fun way to relieve stress and takes me away from the moment. I love to spend time with my fiancé and enjoy one another’s company. The last movie I saw was Barbie, and I must say it was a blast.
Hi, my name is Jacob Day. I’m one of the senior analysts for Radiology’s Informatics Division.
I grew up in a small town northwest of Cincinnati called Okeana. I currently live in Hidden Valley Lake, Indiana, with my wife Kayla, kids Jameson and Juniper, and our two dogs, a wiener dog named Arlo and a golden doodle named Barley.
I have always been interested in the medical field and trying to figure out how the body works. When I was young, I would put together models of the human skeletal system. I ended up going to college to study kinesiology and health to learn more about the body and how it moves. When I graduated, I worked for a start-up in Cincinnati that did medical image and clinical data exchange for clinical trials and medical device companies for pre-surgical planning. I have also worked for a CRO, working in their Core Lab, and other hospitals in the Cincinnati area. My entire career has been focused on medical imaging workflows and applications.
I chose Cincinnati Children’s for a couple reasons. The first is the reputation the Imaging Informatics team has. It is full of brilliant, hardworking people that really take pride in their work. Some of the systems and processes that the Imaging Informatics team has implemented are truly groundbreaking, and many hospitals around the country use Cincinnati Children’s practices and configurations to solve problems in their hospitals.
I was also lucky/unlucky enough to see the team in action. In the summer of 2022, my son was in a bicycle accident and ended up breaking his arm and lacerating his spleen. We ended up spending five nights at Children’s and we were able to see first-hand the professionalism and compassion of the Children’s team.
In my role, I am focusing on some of our enterprise imaging applications and therapies like ophthalmology, dental, and endocrinology. I’m also working with our ImageMover app, where we can take patient imaging from your phone and securely transfer it to Epic and PACS.
Most of my time is spent doing things with my children. I help coach their sports teams, and we like to go hiking in our neighborhood. When I’m not running around doing a kid activity, I like to work out, golf, cook, and just relax. The last book I read was The Chronicles of Narnia. My son has the series and we read a chapter every night. The last book I read for myself was an autobiography on Ulysses S. Grant. My daughter is starting to get into Disney characters and princesses, so the last movie I watched was Tangled.
