“I chose to study radiologic technology because the radiography department felt like home to me after I job shadowed in various departments of the medical field.” “The local businesses and medical sites are very accommodating. I have had so many different opportunities to job shadow all across town, and was not limited to just the hospital. From X-Rays or MRIs to EKGs and ultrasounds, they all are something I see myself enjoying the rest of my life.”
