I heard about Fortis College from a friend, she came here, and she was telling me that they had a great medical assisting program and when I came and I spoke with admissions they were nice and friendly and they just made the process easy.
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.
People come in, they have an issue, they ask me for help and it is just the best feeling when they leave and they feel better, they feel better about themselves, their body feels better, it is pretty amazing.
The Fortis College instructors and the students that participated in my experience helped me realize you are never too old to start over.
