Hi! I’m Macy Gabbard and I’m from Fort Thomas, Kentucky. I live with my two younger brothers and my parents.

I am a junior at Northern Kentucky University and plan to graduate in 2022 with a BS in Radiologic Science to become an X-Ray Tech. The program at NKU is three years and I will be finishing up my first year after this semester.

I started working at Cincinnati Children’s in 2017 in the OTPT Department and transferred to the Radiology Department because of my interest in x-ray. In Radiology, I divide my time as a Technologist Student and work part-time as a Reading Room Assistant.

I enjoy playing and watching sports, and on the weekends I coach kids soccer.

Hi, my name is Laura, and I am from Colerain, OH. Colerain Township is one of the twelve townships of Hamilton County, Ohio, United States, and founded in 1794. The population of the township was 58,499 at the 2010 census. I live with my boyfriend and our two dog-children.

I am a current first year Radiological Technology student at University of Cincinnati’s Blue Ash campus. Half of my time is being a student and the other half is being a part-time Reading Room Assistant, in the Department of Radiology.

I have an eighteen month nephew, who is my favorite human. I enjoy reading and playing video and table top games.
