Our Providers at The Thermogram Center
The Thermogram Center was conceived by Tirza Derflinger in 2002. She had previously served as a Medical Laboratory Technician in the Army, obtained a B.S. in Industrial Engineering, and an M.B.A. in the Management of Technology. After working professionally for over 15 years, she had become dissatisfied... corporate work had become too impersonal and was no longer soulfully gratifying. At age 38, she left a six-figure income to return to her true calling: helping people in a health field. She founded the Thermogram Center, an S-Corp, and remains the only officer in this business entity.
In 2005, she responded to the overwhelming question from clients, "what can I do about the potential risk factors observed in my thermal imaging?" by founding the Breast Health Education Group, made up of seven authors of "Better Breast Health - for Life!™". Since then, Tirza serves as a Breast Health Educator & Facilitator by providing education to clients and workshops and lectures in the workplace, organizations, and the community.
Multiple individuals and entities are involved in providing thermal imaging that complies with the medical and business laws of Colorado and the nation. The credentials for the primary service providers to TTC are listed below.
Thermograms are 100% digital and can be electronically delivered (via protected server) with an individual's health history information for analyses. The Thermogram Center obtains analyses and interpretive reporting through a California-based service provider with interpretive experience dating back to 1992 with dozens of thermal imaging centers across the U.S.

Our Office Manager has a variety of experience in customer service and telephone support. She was very successful in her previous role as a sales consultant for credit card processing, but did not feel personal fulfillment in this role. She came to the Thermogram Center in March of 2016 in search of a career change that would allow her to help others. She enjoys learning how to serve others while improving her own health.
Leslie is also a mother of a 4 year old girl named Addison. She spends most of her free time doing yoga or playing outside with "Addie" and experimenting to encourage her to eat new foods and textures. Leslie is very appreciative of a flexible schedule that allows her to continue striving to be the best mother she can be. Tirza and Jayne are very appreciative of her can-do attitude, attention to detail, and outstanding customer service.
