Ms. Moori has been in the field of Medical Health Physics for almost 14 years. Before joining West Physics, Ms. Moori started in the field working as a student intern at Brody Medical Radiation Safety Office in Greenville, NC. After her internship, she was hired as NC Radiation Health Physicist Inspector. There she earned her certificate of training in MQSA and gained experience in x-ray/ mammography compliance, equipment performance testing, and radiological emergency response. Ms. Moori continued to further her career by working for a major broad scope medical/research hospital. Her experiences are in x-ray regulatory compliance, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy application.
Ms. Moori’s interests include face-to-face training, developing operational programs, and regulatory compliance. She was involved in developing fluoroscopy performance training according to Joint Commission’s standard, served as a liaison with regulatory inspectors, and contributed her expertise in therapeutic nuclear medicine.
Ms. Moori is originally from Eastern North Carolina.

Ms. Dawson attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she obtained a Master of Science degree in Health Physics with a concentration in Environmental Health Physics. Her thesis project in graduate school focused on determining how to effectively structure a risk-based bioassay program for uranium usage in university laboratories. While pursuing her Master’s, she interned with the radiological health and engineering department at National Security Technologies, LLC located at the Nevada National Security Site and with the radiation protection programs group at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
To supplement her interest in community outreach related to fostering the interest of youth in science related fields, Ms. Dawson actively participated in the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’s student chapter of the American Nuclear Society’s community outreach initiative with the Boy Scouts of America’s Nuclear Merit Badge, the Health Physics Society, and served on the collegiate and regional boards of the National Society of Black Engineers. After graduating, Ms. Dawson joined West Physics in January 2018 where she is currently working as a Health Physicist.
Ms. Dawson is originally from Fort Valley, Georgia.
