Maddie Boucher is a freshman from Mackinaw, Illinois. She currently is a health science student planning to pursue the diagnostic medical ultrasound major. After graduation, she plans to begin a career working in the ultrasound department of a major hospital near her home town.

“I would tell any incoming freshman to focus on you!” Maddie says. “College is a big transition and can be chaotic sometimes, so take the time to take care of yourself. Also, stay on top of your work, and don’t be afraid to get involved!”

In addition to serving on the School of Health Profession’s student ambassador team, Maddie is a member of the School of Health Professions professional coed Fraternity, Sigma Eta Rho; STRIPES; and the Student Society of Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound (SSDMU).
