Joanna Hall, A.A.S., RDMS(AB, OB/GYN), RVT
Joanna Hall is a bona fide thought leader in the diagnostic medical ultrasound industry, pioneering the movement for safety in sonography as a first generation college graduate and entrepreneur! Answering the desperate call to action for safety support and advocation in her industry, she filed (and WON) a Whistleblower case with OSHA and founded Ultrasafe Ultrasounds after being terminated from her travel position shortly after the declaration of the Coronavirus Pandemic in April of 2020. She’s also successfully been able to go from the Defensive Realm of Scar Tissue Rehabilitation to an Offensive Space of Soft Tissue Recovery, freeing her from the chronic grips of symptomatic pain secondary to a tear in a rotator cuff muscle and other pathology in her Sonographer Shoulder.
As a stakeholder in OSHA standards, Joanna has created a Safety Certification Program, developed an Ergonomic Safety Process, authored a 30-page White Paper, and produced The Certified Ergo-Mechanics Course for the Prevention of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Injuries and Disorders secondary to the performance of Diagnostic Ultrasound. She is also the host of the Sonographers Spill the Tea podcast and hosts live, in-person and virtual training sessions all across the globe to educate and empower others on how to optimize Safety in Sonography.
Before earning her degree at one of the most widely respected Diagnostic Medical Sonography Programs in the country and becoming an advocate and ally to the ultrasound industry, Joanna endured a third-trimester demise. Experiencing the real world applications of Diagnostic Ultrasound as a patient while actively engaged in the training to become a provider gave Joanna a deep connection and sense of pride and perspective in her field. This foundational learning, empathy, and respect for sonography resounds within her work to this day. Her clinical experience includes: acute care transplant centers in trauma levels I, II, and III and both small rural hospitals and large healthcare systems, free standing EDs, private practices for single providers and physician groups, and teaching facilities across the United States. She is also the proud mother to four amazing children whom she homeschools along with her husband Scott, a USAF veteran and all of whom are active members of Calvary Church in Irving, TX.
