Idamae Jenkins completed a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and a Master’s degree in Physical Education before moving to Ohio and getting her Associate’s degree in Radiologic Technology from Kettering College of Medical Arts in 2002. After her fifteen-year career as an x-ray technologist, Informatics manager and orthopedic technician in the Dayton area, Idamae accepted the Clinical Coordinator position at her alma mater, now Kettering College.
As a graduate of the same college and program, she takes pride in the distinction of being a faculty-alumnus. “Being able to give back to the RSI program and have a direct impact on the technologists graduating within my field is an honor and a privilege that I do not take lightly. While classroom instruction is important, the clinical aspect is equally important because our field requires a hands-on practical approach, which helps to reinforce what was taught in lecture.”
When she is not in the classroom or her “office on wheels” traveling to the different hospitals, Idamae can be found spending time at her church, Beavercreek SDA, as the treasurer and choir director, finding a running race or mission trip to join so she can travel, or just relaxing at home with her husband. She also enjoys spending time with the extended Jenkins family of 5 generations ranging from 103.5 years to 1 month old, including 2 grandchildren, all living locally. She is a huge Michigan fan even though she has resided in Ohio the longest out of any locale.
