Vinette Simpson-Spence

Medical Assistant

Vinette is one of our most committed, passionate and successful medical assisting students. She came to us with a dream of working in the healthcare field. Now that she’s set to graduate, she is ready to achieve that dream. Here is what she had to say about her experience at the Allen School: When my friends ask why I consider the Allen School one of the best Health Sciences schools, I tell them that it’s because they always put their students first! Before I enrolled at the Allen School, my life and career was bumpy. I had no clear direction or focus on where I was headed as a professional or person. I can now put my future and career at the forefront of my life. The Allen School has opened doors for me that I never knew existed. My growth as a person and medical professional has changed so drastically since my first day of class, it’s unbelievable to compare where I am today to where I was a few months ago. Whenever I felt overwhelmed or discouraged, one of my medical assisting training instructors or mentors would always put a smile on my face, reminding me that if I put my mind to it, I could accomplish anything. I want to personally thank the following instructors and doctors for their guidance: Dr. Karim, Dr. Choudhury, Dr. Pasha, Dr. Andradle and Dr. Batson; Ms. Chambers, Ms. Te, Ms. Walters, Ms. Murray and Ms. Mann, thank you all! Plus, my success would not have been possible without help from my Admissions Office representative, Bianca Jackson. Thank you for always keeping me motivated throughout my time at the Allen School. The Career Services department is a small yet so powerful team who always kept me and fellow students in the know about jobs, internships and preparing us all for what it takes to be a successful medical professional. With my education at the Allen School, I am now looking forward to a promising career that’s stable, rewarding and a dream come true.
