Then: A senior at Tuttle High School researching radiologic technology programs around the state. Chelsea's English teacher, who had lived in Stillwater during college, knew of Meridian Technology Center's reputation and suggested she check it out. Chelsea enrolled and while in high school completed prerequisites, then started the fall program, where she
- Learned to take medical X-ray images for diagnosing medical conditions following physicians' orders and conforming to regulations.
- Put into practice skills and techniques learning in the classroom at the designated clinical site, McBride Orthopedic Hospital.
- Was hired as a student radiographer at McBride, passed the American Register of Radiologic Technologist exam and was promoted to radiologic technologist and clinical instructor.
Now: At just 27 years old, Chelsea is the director of medical imaging at McBride Orthopedic Hospital in Oklahoma City.
