Medical Assisting – 2012 Grad

STI was a great experience for me.  Our class was like a family; we were close, supported each other and made being in school again a positive experience.  The teachers could be tough but kept me in check also.

Since I graduated in 2012 I worked as a medical assistant floating at Signature Healthcare.  I gained experience in internal medicine, family practice, orthopedics and eye services.  With the experience I gained there I then went on to working in an optometry office as an optometric technician.  It pays a little more than medical assisting and believe it or not there is a lot to know about eyes, and it can be interesting.  I don’t think a lot of people know that there’s a lot of different positions you can work in just from becoming a medical assistant.
STI definitely has been the root of my beginning of many career opportunities and helped me find myself.  Recently I started online courses at Quincy college to start towards becoming an RN.  I am doing it very part time and hoping to be finished within the next five or so years.  That is my ultimate goal.
