What brought you to The Allen School?

After several types of jobs, an associate’s degree, and considering a variety of four-year college degrees, I just knew that I wanted to continue my education in the medical field. I had experience already. I served five years in the Navy as a medic, but it had been a while ago, so I wanted to bring my skills back up to standards. Also, I wasn’t just concerned with the graduation rate or certifications from a school. I wanted to be part of a community again, a group of people that wanted to help others as much as I did. When I started my classes at Allen School, it was easy to see that the staff and students all shared that belief and passion as well.
