‘Community’ is essential to Dr. Jay Alley. Whether working to beautify and maintain a 100-year-old shared space owned by the city in his neighborhood or serving at his Church, he enjoys involvement with others. For example, he organized fellow residents who ‘took over,’ with permission of the city, the shared space near his house because they didn’t maintain the landscaping. He says he enjoys getting outside and gardening, which was a way to keep this shared area and, by extension, his neighborhood beautiful. His role as ‘Verger’ at the Episcopal Church, a ceremonial position, who leads the procession and has the traditional job of protecting the bishop from petty thieves in the streets of England, is a way to participate without “committing to seminary” he says good-naturedly.

The actual act of being a radiologist is enjoyable; it’s like solving a puzzle.” Helping people on their journey of life is something that he does both inside and outside of Raleigh Radiology, and he truly enjoys that role.
