LEARN TO FALL SO YOU CAN FLY
Written by Kari Allen-Hammer, Ph.D.

Stop resisting the inevitable and prepare yourself properly.

Our lives have abruptly and drastically shifted. For some, this means the ground is shuffling beneath you now and you have to alter your positioning to avoid falling.

For others, you may get a much-needed respite from the demands of an over-scheduled, stretched-too-thin lifestyle, but the stuckness of inactivity is beginning to set in.

We’re in the midst of a significant
Conversations
Can You Think of The Last Time You Were in A Conversation Where You Felt Like You Just Weren't Being Heard or Understood?
Have you ever finished a conversation and realized that you still had a ton of questions or comments and are actually not really sure what the end result of the conversation was? Or for that matter, do certain conversations leave you completely drained and feeling sort of spacey?

These are all signs that what’s happening isn’t really communication in the
When Passion & Skills Don’t Match
For many students, finding a career path is as easy as asking a simple question.

“What’s your passion?”

These students, having a passion that matches their skill set with reality aligning ever so perfectly, answer effortlessly. “Well, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, I love science and everyone in my family is a doctor, so I definitely want to pursue that field. I want to be a pediatrician. In fact, I have since I w

Alumni Spotlight

Christina Breeden

Christina Breeden, a recent graduate of our MRI program, was one of our first students who took advantage of the early registration for the ARMRIT Certification examination. Students are now able to complete the application and send to ARMRIT at the beginning of their last semester in the MRI program, which allows them to take the exam prior to completion of the program! This is a great benefit for the student as upon graduation they are certified and ready to land their first MRI job!

Congratulations Christina on taking advantage of this new process and getting out in the field as quickly as possible!

 Are you currently working in your field of study?
Yes. I am an MRI Technologist and am responsible for screening the patient, positioning the patient and scanning the patient.

What made you choose MRI as a career?
I retired from the military after 20 years and wanted to do something I’ve always wanted to do – MRI>

What are your career goals for the future?
I just received my ARMRIT Certification and my next step is to get my ARRT (MR) Certification.

What advice can you give current students and new graduates that can help them be successful?
STUDY! Never give up and never stop learning. Stick with it and you will succeed. And never be afraid to ask questions.

How did Casa Loma College help you get where you are today?
Amazing instructors and assistance!

What was your experience getting certified? Did you feel prepared? What prepared you the most?
ARMRIT Certification was very easy. The tests in the program are hard but prepared me well for the ARMRIT Exam. I felt very prepared walking in to take my ARMRIT exam.

What was the biggest obstacle or challenge you had to overcome in the program?
Finding the time to study while maintain a job and my family – but my job and family were supportive!

What helped you the most in passing your courses?
Recording the lessons and listening to them on my way to work. Also contacting my instructors if I had questions that I could not find or understand on my own.

What are some highlights from your time at Casa Loma College?
The relationships I made and the knowledge that I gained. It was a fast two years!

What was your support system while going to school?
My fiancé, who was also in the program with me and of course my family.

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Hopefully I will be a full RT (radiologic Technologist) with my ARRT credential added to my credential and working in a hospital or MRI research.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spend time with my family. Go to church. And I love to travel!
