CLC student 1710A, MRI Graduate Class of 2019
We enter the classroom, bright eyed and full of eagerness to learn of the explorations of our future chosen careers. While we sit comfortably, (for the most part), in our well-lit educational environment, notebooks blank and our pens waiting to start filling the pages with unknown and new information. The instructor really doesn’t share with you the reality, the fears, and the hard work that goes into
The word RESILIENCE has become quite the buzzword in current media and marketing. Terms and concepts related to the idea of being resilient seem to pack quite a bit of value-added to products and services that claim to make you more resilient.
Clearly, as a public, we love the word and we love the idea of being resilient but what does it really mean?
Resilience is much more than just a buzzword. It’s also more than being prepared for adversity, an
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.

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

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I graduated from University of Redlands with a bachelor’s degree in Biology in 2015. I worked as a veterinary nurse assistant for 5 years before deciding on starting my schooling as a diagnostic medical sonographer.
Where have you worked since you graduated and where do you currently work? What is your title?
I am fortunate enough to be able to continue my job as a veterinary nurse assistant and also work at a Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic as a sonographer.
What type of things do you do on your job day to day?
As a sonographer, I am able to scan women in different stages of their pregnancy to check the growth and health of their babies as well as any potential complications. I pass along my findings to the doctor who then comes up with their treatment plan if there is anything of concern.
What do you like about your career?
I enjoy the fact that every day is a chance to learn something new and also an opportunity to help expectant mothers with their complicated pregnancies.
What are your career goals for the future?
I am currently working on getting my ARDMS specialties in OB/GYN and Abdomen. I am also hoping to one day learn fetal echo.
How did Casa Loma College help you get where you are today?
Casa Loma gave me the knowledge and the skills to go out and be ready to learn from real patients and real sonographers.
What was your experience like getting a job after you graduated?
Thankfully, I was able to be placed in an amazing clinical site where the staff was very welcoming and willing to teach me. I was fortunate enough to have been offered a job there and have been working there for a little more than a month now.
What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome getting into the program?
I was really worried about having to stop working while I did my schooling. Luckily, the evening classes worked perfectly with my schedule and I was able to continue working during the day and then go to class in the evenings.
What are some highlights from your time at Casa Loma College?
I met some incredible people and made some great friendships. It feels more like an extended family because we are all working hard to reach the same goal and we support each other along the way.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I enjoy reading and catching up on tv shows. Unfortunately concerts and music festivals have been cancelled but hopefully everything will go back to normal soon.
Where do you see yourself five years from now in your career?
In 5 years I hope to have all my specialties and certifications completed and have a stable career. I hope to stay in the field of OB/GYN, but I am open to other opportunities as well.
What advice can you give current students and new graduates that can help them be successful?
Scanning skills and speed come with practice so don’t feel discouraged or let it hold you back. Also, how professional you are with patients plays a big part in how potential employers view you as a potential future employee.
What’s the best advice you can give incoming students and students currently in the DMS program?
It may seem overwhelming at times and like too much to learn but ask questions and ask professors for help. Everyone is willing to teach you as long as you are willing to learn and put in the work.
