Degree/training: EMT certification, Radiologic technologist

Career Aspiration: I would like to get my doctorate in Radiology one day.

Why did you choose your career path? I thought it sounded very interesting when I heard someone talking about it with my dad and at the time I had no idea what I wanted to do for a job. I always knew I wanted something in medicine but not what and that helped me to decide on this path.

Where did you hear about a health career path and how did you enter this path? My dad’s friend’s wife is in Radiology and she was telling him about it. I heard them and thought it sounded interesting and asked for more details.

What advice would you give those who are guiding students into health careers? To tell them to find a good balance between studying for your classes and having fun there’s a lot of studying involved, but if you do it too much, you will make yourself miserable and not enjoy the program.

What high school courses do you feel helped you? Being in algebra and doing well in that program has helped a bunch in the Radiology class most of the math is algebra.

What courses do you wish you took to prepare you for current health career training? Chemistry, because in Radiology you talk about the different chemicals a lot.
