Shoreline’s Dr. Cathy Otto, Dean of the Health Occupations, Physical Education and Business Division at Shoreline Community College, has been recognized by the Medical Technology Schools website as one of the “Top Twenty Professors of Clinical Lab Science You Should Know.”
Otto, who’s been at Shoreline since January, 2015, said that she not only hopes the recognition will help bring attention to Shoreline’s stellar programs, but also give credence to her years as faculty and her understanding of what it’s like to be in the classroom.
“I appreciate being recognized for my passion for the profession and for preparing future medical lab scientists,” she said. “Education is such an important part of my life; I love learning, and I love seeing how education can change lives.”
Otto, who has been an active member of the medical community spanning her entire career, was chosen for the list based on her “leadership skills and clinical expertise.”
Along with teaching, Otto has been heavily involved with the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science for years, including a stint as President in 2011-12.
