Prepares Tissue Slides for Microscopic Examination by Pathologists

Prepares Tissue Slides for Microscopic Examination by Pathologists

April Brown-Janis
2016, Associate of Applied Science in Histotechnology
Argosy University, Dallas
Histotechnician, Alliance Health Sciences

“I previously worked in the field for years, but there were so many things I was lacking. Argosy University definitely prepared me for the real world by teaching me embedding, grossing and microtomy.”

Prepares Tissue Slides for Microscopic Examination by Pathologists

April Brown-Janis is a histotechnician for Alliance Health Services, responsible for preparing tissue slides for microscopic examination by pathologists to either diagnose or dismiss disease. “I am responsible for embedding tissue specimens, microtomy of paraffin-embedded tissue and operation of the automated stainer and coverslipper,” she said. Brown-Janis also manages equipment maintenance and record retention.

She began her career as a laboratory aid and embedding technician for Dr. Clay Cockerell. “I then moved on to the cytology department at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center,” she added. “I would take my cell blocks down the hall to be cut by the histotechnicians. One day, I realized how much I missed working in histology.”

Brown-Janis decided to follow her passion and return to school to study histotechnology. In 2016, she earned an Associate of Applied Science in Histotechnology from Argosy University, Dallas. She graduated magna cum laude and, after passing the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) exam, became a certified histotechnician in early 2017.

She said that school was challenging, but the support of instructors and fellow students helped her to succeed. “The best advice I have for current students is to put their best foot forward and never give up, no matter what,” mentioned Brown-Janis. “Nothing worth having comes easy in life.”

Brown-Janis stated that her education at Argosy University focused on hands-on learning. “I previously worked in the field for years, but there were so many things I was lacking,” she said. “Argosy University definitely prepared me for the real world by teaching me embedding, grossing and microtomy.” Her education also led to career advancement, including better pay and more opportunities. “I have gained so much respect from my family and friends—they now look up to me,” she said.

She added that her instructors took the time to push her when she needed extra encouragement. “I earned a 70% on a class assignment after making mostly As and Bs,” stated Brown-Janis. “[Instructor] Hood [pushed back at me]. It was because she cared so much about her students and their education.” Brown-Janis also cites her [instructor]Kennedy for his enthusiasm, humor and passion in the classroom. “I was pregnant, [worn down] and told him that I was withdrawing from the program—even though I only had a few months left. He wouldn't let me do it. He went the extra mile to make sure I completed my assignments—and my degree.”

Supervises, Trains and Supports Doctoral-Level Students Completing Practicum, Internship or Fellowship

Supervises, Trains and Supports Doctoral-Level Students Completing Practicum, Internship or Fellowship

Tina Shah
2005, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology
2007, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology
Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University
Supervisor of Psychology Training Program at Washburn Center for Children

“The school prepared me to be a well-rounded clinician,” Shah said. “It provided me with the skills, tools, and confidence needed for this career. It also helped me to gain more awareness about myself and what I bring to the work that I do.”

Supervises, Trains and Supports Doctoral-Level Students Completing Practicum, Internship or Fellowship

Tina Shah is the director of training at Washburn Center for Children in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She provides supervision, training and support to doctoral-level students who are completing a practicum, predoctoral internship or postdoctoral fellowship. Shah also provides direct client services.

Shah chose Argosy University to build upon her undergraduate degree in child psychology. “I wanted to provide direct services to people, specifically children, adolescents and their families, so I went on to complete my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology and Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University,” she said. “I chose the program because of its focus on clinical psychology.”

“Once I obtained licensure as a psychologist, I was very involved in the training program and providing supervision to doctoral-level trainees at the community mental health center where I was employed—where I had completed my practicum and postdoctoral fellowship placements,” she added. Shah went on to become the assistant supervisor of the agency’s psychology training program before moving into her current position.

She mentioned that seeing transformations is the best part of her career. “[I enjoy] seeing the positive impact a strong relationship can have on a person, whether it be a trainee or a client,” she said. “It is amazing to see people develop and change in positive ways.”

Shah admits that finding the balance to complete her doctoral degree was challenging. “It was helpful to have others in my life to remind me how to create balance and give me perspective and hope during those difficult and overwhelming times,” she added.

She cites the supportive, knowledgeable faculty as being integral to her success in the classroom. “The program prepared me to be a well-rounded clinician,” Shah said. “It provided me with the skills, tools and confidence needed for this career. It also helped me to gain more awareness about myself and what I bring to the work that I do.”

Shah encourages current students to follow their passion. “Take time to cultivate meaningful relationships with professors, supervisors and the clients that you serve,” she stated. “Lastly, culture matters. Explore who you are, the experiences you have had and what you bring to the work you do.”

Treats Medically Complex Patients Suffering from Chronic Pain

Treats Medically Complex Patients Suffering from Chronic Pain

Jenna Buth-Croes
2015, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology
2013, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology
Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University
Clinical Health Psychology Fellow at the Cleveland Clinic

“My instructors were supportive of my interests in health psychology and they were willing to work with me to meet my needs and passion.”

Treats Medically Complex Patients Suffering from Chronic Pain

Dr. Jenna Buth-Croes is a clinical health psychology fellow in the Interdisciplinary Method for the Assessment and Treatment of Chronic Headache (IMATCH) program at the Cleveland Clinic, a program that treats medically complex patients with chronic pain.

Buth-Croes earned her Master of Arts and Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. While in graduate school, Buth-Croes completed training rotations ranging from generalist experiences to health psychology experiences. “During my last year of formal coursework at Argosy University, I was the graduate student Senate president which I enjoyed,” she said. “I was fortunate that I matched at the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center in its health psychology track. After my APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship, I accepted a two-year fellowship position with the Cleveland Clinic.”

She is focused on the areas of chronic pain, motivational interviewing and mindfulness. “I have been invited to and spoken at many different functions throughout my career, including grand rounds at the Neurological Institute at Cleveland Clinic,” she added.

She chose Argosy University because the Doctor of Psychology program was APA (American Psychological Association) accredited* and because she respected the faculty. “My [instructors] were wonderful and really helped to shape who I am professionally,” she stated. “They were supportive of my interests in health psychology and they were willing to work with me to meet my needs and passion.”

She added that the education at Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University prepared her well for clinical practice—and her current position as a health psychologist.

Buth-Croes is proud to have been awarded grant money for a study in which she’s the principal investigator. “I developed mindfulness group intervention for the treatment of fibromyalgia and completed a study examining the use of this protocol and patient engagement,” she said. “I will be submitting it for publication this summer.”

She advises current students to take risks, be willing to go outside of comfort zones and find a balance between school and life. “Finding the balance between coursework, home life and work life was difficult,” she stated. “I think practicing good time management was key.”

In addition to her work at the Cleveland Clinic, Buth-Croes is active in the American Psychological Association Division 38, Health Psychology, American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) Early Entry Registrant and the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM).
