Connie Weber

I am from Missoula. I have been in the medical field since I was 19 years old. I have done a little bit of everything, but I found my love for ultrasound about 20 years ago. I time everything by the ages of my kids, they were babies when I started. I have a son and daughter that are fine young adults that I am very proud of.

I have worked with Dr. Fausett for 7 years. I can honestly say it has been the best years of my life. I love my job and my Origin Health family. I'm grateful for the wonderful people I've met during happy times and some hard times and my heart has been touched that I was allowed to be part of their journey. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, camping, skiing, hiking, boating, and spending time with my family.

Traci Paniagua

I moved to Montana 9 years ago from Las Vegas. I love the beauty of Montana! I have been doing MFM ultrasound for 18 years, and it's been a privilege to have worked with and learned from Dr. Fausett for a number of years.

I have 3 kids and 4 dogs. I love being able to be a part of the exciting time in parents' lives and showing them their baby. In my free time, I like to read, craft and spend time with my kids.

Kara Roberts

I am a MT native, born and raised in Kalispell. I married my high school sweetheart and we have 3 wonderful kids, including a set of twins (which I discovered while scanning myself!). I love Jesus, biking, skiing, and riding horses.

I have been doing ultrasounds since 2005, and I absolutely love working for Origin Health, it’s literally my dream job.

Mandy Schmidt

I used to enjoy travel, rafting, fishing, hiking, skiing and spending time with my horse.
Now, I love spending every available moment with my hubby and new little baby!

I have been in healthcare since 2004 and a sonographer for over a decade. I love my job!
Dr. Fausett gave me the opportunity to learn perinatal ultrasound in 2014.
I am so happy to have joined his team at Origin Health.


I've been working as a sonographer for 4 years and with Origin Health since November of 2020. I enjoy the personal relationships developed with each of our patients over the course of their pregnancy and providing excellent care in the process.

In my free time I enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, skiing and hiking with my two border collies . Anytime I get to spend with friends and family is time well spent.

Sarah Wilson

I have been working in high-risk OB/GYN ultrasound since 2013. I've worked in hospitals in Dallas, TX and Minneapolis, MN before moving to beautiful Helena, MT. I love camping and swimming in the summer. Winter, I like to bake and also cuddle up with a nice book while enjoying the beautiful snow and mountain views.

Jennifer Van Syckle

I received my Bachelor of Science from Oregon Tech, in 2005, and have worked as a sonographer in multiple hospitals and clinics around Montana since then. I earned a Master's in Communications in 2018, and now, in addition to ultrasound, I work in Public Health quality and education as a freelance editor. I love genealogy, skiing, and anything outdoors. My husband and I have two children, three cats, and a dog.
