    It’s such a big accomplishment especially because my parents didn’t think I’d make it this far but they always rooted me on 100%. And I made it. I did. I was very happy.

    The most influential people in my life have been the Fortis instructors, of course. They’ve always been around from the beginning to the end, for ups and downs, just for everything; and, of course, my family, my daughter.

    I wanted to become a medical assistant because I have a special needs son and I was his caregiver, so I wanted to go into the health field to learn more about his needs and be educated in what I can help others do.

    My experience with the program was good, I liked the teachers, I would have liked more lab time but overall the program is good preparation for a job in or related to HVAC/Refrigeration.
