First of all, I’d like to thank Mr. James Delaney of the Career Services department at the Allen School for helping me land my first job as a healthcare professional. Two months before my graduation, I started working as a full-time Medical Office Assistant . Since then, I have increased my salary and after three more months I became Assisting Manager! Overall, my experience at the Allen School has changed my life tremendously. It has allowed me to become independent as I now provide for myself and my family. I am not only a Medical Assistant, I am also a mother of four loving children who give me all the reason to make a name for myself. Since graduation, I have gained a renewed sense of self-respect and confidence. Today my life is full of great opportunities and I’m passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of our patients. I want to express my sincere appreciation to all those at the Allen School who had faith in me. You have all done so much to change my life for the better. If I knew what I know now, I would have made the decision much sooner to begin my journey at the Allen School. To anyone considering the Medical Assistant Education program, my question for you would be, what are you waiting for?
