About Wendy Sweatt
I received my Associate's Degree in Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) at Jefferson State and began my lab career at what is now St. Vincent's East. After a few years of being out of school, I went back to school and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Allied Health from UAB. This degree, plus my years of work experience, made me eligible to take the ASCP Medical Technologist (MT) exam. I received my Master's Degree from UAB in Clinical Laboratory Sciences in 2005. I started in September 2007 at UA in the Doctoral Program for Higher Education Administration and am currently working on my dissertation.
My only teaching experience has been at Jefferson State. I started teaching lab classes part time in 1997 and eventually lecture classes as well. I had worked full time at St. Vincent's East for more than 10 years, but began to enjoy teaching more. So when a full time position became available at Jeff State in 2002, I was happy to take it.
I love to travel more than anything, and am going to try and hit all 50 states (and possibly other countries) before I die. I have been to 20 states so far- 30 to go! My interests are varied. I have tried most everything, including skeet shooting and skydiving, and am not particularly good at anything. I prefer to be outside and enjoy anything that I can do outdoors. As far as inside activities, I do like to read mystery/crime novels. I enjoy movies but regular TV not so much, except for The Big Bang Theory.
As far as immediate family, I have one sister but both of my parents are deceased.
I got married in March of 2005 to my husband Tracy, who has two sons. Our daughter, Cadence, is six and has already informed me that I am "not cool".
