I was drawn to the Medical Assistant program at FORTIS College, in part because I have always wanted a better understanding of health and wellness due to health issues in my family. I also have a passion for taking care of people and have thought for a long time that I wanted a career in healthcare.
The school administration, instructors and my student colleagues were very supportive in helping me through. Now I’ve done with the program, I’m looking forward to a future in the HVAC or related industries.
Working full-time, being a mother, wife and homemaker; balancing everything was challenging, but I was able to get through with hard work and perseverance.
