Meet Janelle: Our new Cardiology Technologist blogger

Janelle Hay, Stenberg's student, is happy with the outcomes of her Cardiology Technologist Program.
Janelle started the Cardiology Technologist Diploma program in January 2018

My name is Janelle and I am so excited to start this blogging journey to share my adventures and what I learn in the Cardiology Technologist Diploma program at Stenberg College!


To start off, I would like to share a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Abbotsford in beautiful British Columbia. Since I was young, I have been involved in multiple sports from gymnastics to long distance running and competitive swimming. Now, I love staying active by hiking, weight lifting and running. Around the beginning of high school, I found my desire for science and my overall passion for learning. Specifically for biology.

I completed an undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Victoria. Wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do just yet but I knew I wasn’t done with my education. I have worked in the hospitality industry at a hotel and volunteered in the medical imaging department at the Royal Jubilee Hospital during university. Loving both fields, I thought what kind of career involves using my Biology degree and interacting and helping people every day? With that, I wanted a career that would challenge me, involve research, and be different each day I am at work.

Becoming a Registered Cardio Tech

That is when I stumbled upon Stenberg College and their Cardiology Technologist Diploma program one night while browsing the Internet. I started researching all about it and looking at past student’s experiences about the school and the program. Within that week I got a meeting with one of the Program Advisors. When I learned about the program and met a few people in the field I knew this was what I wanted to do! Cardiology Technologists are the first ones to interpret Electrocardiograms and help patients every day. I knew this career would be challenging but rewarding. Actually, fun fact, I learned that I was the last admitted person for the British Columbia area! Phew, was that close!

The program started back in January this year and so far, it has been amazing. I can’t say it has been easy though. The course is rigorous as we are learning new material every day. But I know that the stress and workload are all worth it in the end!

Can’t wait for all of you readers to follow along with me on this journey of becoming a registered Cardiology Technologist 🙂
