Ellen Cadwell and Erin Walker were each awarded tenure as
faculty members at Shoreline Community College by unanimous votes of the Board
of Trustees at the March 20, 2013 regular board meeting.
“It is just outstanding that Shoreline has such high caliber
talent,” Trustee Gidget Terpstra said.
Cadwell is Director of the Health Informatics and
Information Management (HIIM) program. The innovative program is completely
online, one of the few such programs in the U.S. and has students from across
the country. As health-care records have become increasingly computerized,
employees in the field must be trained and certified. The HIIM program prepares
students to take national certification exams and many go on to work in a
variety of health-care settings including hospitals, long term care facilities,
clinics and others.
Walker has worked in the International Education office
since 2002. She has had various immigration and advising duties, but definitely
finds advising to be the most rewarding. Walker holds bachelor's and master's
degrees in Music from the University of Idaho. Besides advising international
students, Walker also enjoys travelling and has visited 18 other countries and
is looking forward to more.
