Nicole Bunda-Randall started with CAMP in 2018. She specializes in therapeutic medical physics and is certified through the American Board of Radiology.
As a Clinical Medical Physicist, Nicole works with various treatment units including, but not limited to, Varian 21EX, Trilogy, and TrueBeam Linear Accelerators, Varian Afterloader, Elekta Gamma Knife and Zeiss Intraop. She has experience with external beam therapies, brachytherapy planning, stereotactic patients, dosimetry review, image fusion and dose accumulation with MimVista, as well as R&V systems and intraoperative radiotherapy. As a Radiation Safety Officer, Nicole participates in radiation safety training, I-131 treatments, and breast seed localizations.
She has implemented programs such as Total Body Irradiation, Respiratory Motion Management, and Prostate and Syed HDR treatments. Her career passions involve Task Groups, constructive communication, and streamlined QA programs.
Nicole completed her Bachelor of Science with a double major in Physics and Mathematics from Purdue University. She received her Masters of Science in Radiological Medical Physics at the University of Kentucky.
Nicole grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, finding her passion for the outdoors in graduate school. On most weekends she can be found taking in all Colorado has to offer: Rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking. She happily resides in Pueblo, CO with her husband Bryce and their perfect pups Chowder and Waffles.
