Anna Kinney, CRA, MBA
Title: Vice President of Operations
Organization: Upstream Strategies, LLC
Address: Jersey City, NJ
One of my achievements that I’m most proud of is becoming a Certified Radiology Administrator. I took the exam for personal reasons. I wanted to prove to myself that I was a highly qualified administrator.
The process is voluntary, rigorous, and those that obtain the credential are certainly at the top of their field. I hope to create awareness and promote the CRA credential so that organizations will recognize the value a Certified Radiology Administrator adds to an organization.

Title: Interim Director Imaging Services
Organization: WakeMed Health & Hospitals
Address: Cary, NC
I attended the 2015 AHRA Annual Meeting in Las Vegas and had the opportunity to attend the CRA reception. I was excited to lean that a position on the RACC was opening as I would love to be involved in furthering the development of the CRA program and awareness amongst imaging professionals.
David S. Partridge, CRA, FAHRA
Title: Imaging Director
Address: Columbus, OH
I am interested in becoming a commissioner to help continue to grow the recognition of the credential. We are making strides towards having all radiology leadership positions have a CRA preferred designation but still have some work to be done.
I can help the RACC influence leaders around the country towards proving our part of the value equation in healthcare. I believe that the designation shows a commitment to excellence that our patients and teams deserve.
I look forward to showing the value of our credential and expanding its influence throughout the industry.
