Jeri Helmer - CEO and Founder

Jeri began her ultrasound career immediately after graduating in August of 1996 with an Associates Degree in Applied Science in the Diagnostic Medical Sonographer Program.  She is a registered sonographer with experience in general and vascular ultrasound.  Jeri has worked in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Maine, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, and Alaska.  While traveling and working at these hospitals across the United States, she began to think that there had to be a better way.  Blue Stone Partners was formed from the belief that technicians who are well taken care of will be happy and perform better.
