Jalaine was the youngest person to be accepted and graduate from CSI’s Radiologic Technology program with an Associate of Applied Science. While attending CSI she worked in the CSI Library and was Rad Tech Club President. Upon graduation, Jalaine was hired full-time at St. Luke’s Magic Valley Regional Medical Center as an X-ray Technologist. She has gained training in many different areas of the radiology field, including trauma, surgery, and interventional procedures. She is currently training to become a Computerized Tomography (CT) Technologist.
Jalaine always wanted to pursue a degree in a medical field. CSI provided her the opportunity to do so. She also enrolled in many classes that helped her gain skills in patient care and in dealing with traumatic incidents, death/dying, and bereavement which she faces daily.
