Graduate - October 2014

Resides in Wisconsin

Wow! During my high school years, I never thought I would be good enough to attend college. I struggled and studied hard every day but for some reason, I was not able to comprehend what I was learning. I actually did not graduate with my class. Years had gone by and I was not going anywhere in life. I went back to school to get my diploma and I graduated in 2007. I then decided to go onto college for Business Management. I had a hard time and none of the students wanted to even talk to one another. I had received a phone call from Allen School of Health Sciences (Frank Grigsby) and I held on to their information because I had fear of the unknown and I doubted myself and my abilities. All through high school and my previous college experience, no matter how hard I tried I just could not do get it. I started at the Allen School of Health Sciences in January of 2014 and I have learned so much about what billing and coding is all about. Being in class every day has allowed me to gain some of the best friendships. We learned to be-come a bigger TEAM. I never made honor roll of any kind in my life, but here at Allen School I have made honor roll 3 times already. The one thing I am glad about is that I am able to apply myself to my studies and I would rather do that then to struggle more. I am very happy that I stuck it out and I know that things are on the rise for my future, my career. I am enjoying all of my instructors, learning how to stand up proudly with my accomplishments, and most importantly becoming a student at Allen School of Health Sciences. I look forward to meeting my fellow classmates and some of the staff members at the graduation ceremony in 2015. So whatever you do, “DON’T GIVE UP ON YOURSELVES, STEP BACK AND TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND YOU WILL PULL THROUGH JUST FINE.”
