Leevy says that she has enjoyed her career path, stating that it’s been rewarding both professionally and personally.

“It took a lot of hard work and determination to get there but it’s all worth it. The faculty was extremely supportive of all students. I remember how my instructors guided me during stressful times and were always available for tutoring and advice,” she said.

Leevy’s advice for radiologic science students and prospects?

“Stay motivated, stay positive, and continue to improve yourself as a person and as a scholar. The curriculum is heavy and you may get overwhelmed, but if you are organized, you will excel in this field. Also, take a break from time to time to have fun, spend time with your friends and family, and take care of you in all aspects.”
