I chose Southwest Tech because I knew I wanted to be in the medical field but going to a four-year college wasn’t appealing to me. Southwest Tech was close to home and gave me the medical field options I was looking for.
As a graduate of the Medical Assistant program I have been fortunate to work 11+ years as a CMA in multiple specialties and for the past 10 years I have been working as a Clinical Application Specialist (CAS). I am part of our EMR implementation team and offer support and training to all clinical staff. Along with career opportunities, I have been able to meet some amazing people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. I have been a part of some great medical teams and my degree has opened doors to great experiences including a medical trip to Haiti. My heart is and always will be in the medical field and helping others and being able to make a difference in someone’s life is the most rewarding experience.
