Rising Star Jillian Stevenson

By Erin Register

Jillian Stevenson, 23, grew up in Cartersville, Georgia but is originally from Mt. Clemens, Michigan. She graduated from Woodland High School, where she was part of the performing arts program. Following high school, Jillian attended the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) for performing arts. She realized she did not want to pursue an acting career, so she focused on singing and finished her core classes at Georgia Highlands. “As time went on, I found a love for radiology,” Jillian said. She then began school at Cambridge College of Healthcare and Technology, where she is a full-time student and pro re nata. Jillian will graduate in April as a radiologic technologist. Resurgens X-ray Director Lisa Hecht noted, “Jillian is a rising star in the diagnostic imaging field because of her ability to learn and apply her skills with great customer service!”

ICE Magazine learned more about this Rising Star in a question-and-answer session.

Q: Why did you choose to get into this field?

A: I chose radiology because I became intrigued by X-rays through my experience and research. It fits my personality, and I have found a love for this career.

Q: What interests you the most about the imaging field?

A: What interests me the most is getting to be the first in line for diagnosing a patient, as well as getting to reassure the patient that they are going to be OK and are in good hands. Also, the image itself is fascinating to me. The different parts of the body that can be imaged and the different positions and angles that create a beautiful image of the body is amazing. These are just a few reasons why I love this field and my job!

Q: What do you like the most about your position?

A: I love getting to be a part of the diagnostic process for doctors. I also get to play a role in helping patients feel comfortable and putting them at ease during their exam, as well as seeing their progress as the weeks go by.

Q: What has been your greatest accomplishment in your field thus far?

A: My greatest accomplishment in my field to date is getting hired as a student tech at Resurgens Orthopaedics. I take each day here as an honor and hold pride in my position. I am so thankful for this amazing opportunity to be at Resurgens.

Q: What goals do you have for yourself in the next 5 years?

A: After becoming a radiologic technologist, my goals are to continue my education in MRI and become a physician’s assistant.
