Batman and Robin. Romeo and Juliet. Vicki and Erika. Huh? Vicki and whoooooo?
You mean you don’t know? The famous Allen School mother and daughter pair, Vicki and Erika Speller of Queens, who both, within a single week, had the identical idea to become a Medical Assistant and, unbeknownst to each other, applied at Allen School and were accepted! Vicki and Erika, each busy filling out applications, arranging work schedules, purchasing uniforms and setting their individual affairs, personal schedules and apartments in order, had not found a moment to call each other to mention that they would be attending school. They each figured that they would share the news the next time they had a moment to get together. Orientation Day. A room full of new students. Suddenly, a shriek – from both sides of the room – and a burst of laughter! Erika and Vicki spot each other across the room and realize that they are both starting Medical Assistant training – at the same school, in the same class! The surprise and shock on their mutual faces should have been photographed for posterity! It was truly a moment of extraordinary surprise, further amplified by the fact that they had both met with the same career planner, Ryan Otterway, who never put two and two together that the two applicants were related.
The most remarkable coincidence of all is that both mom and daughter were selected at the end of their training to appear on the Speed Staffing System™website and they attended the coordination meeting together. Wouldn’t it be funny if they ended up working in the same medical facility as one starts her career and one changes hers?
