"I wouldn’t be doing the job that I am today if it wasn’t for my kids. I support my kids and it’s a way to be able to be a mom and be able to do what I need to do with my kids."

    My family is so happy that I have completed a new chapter of my life, that I have took the effort to do something else with my life and they are behind me 100%, I cannot thank them more for all the help they have put into helping me with school.

    I chose FORTIS-ERIE because it had the kind of program I wanted and provided me the flexible schedule I needed as a mother with a young child. The quality of the learning was outstanding and I greatly appreciated the fact that the staff and faculty were extremely accommodating.

    The education for me, the difference that it made was I’m actually able to not only to support my family but it gave me a sense of accomplishment; of finally being in the medical field and being in the field that I’ve wanted to be in for so long; and leaving and coming back to it - it was closure for me.

    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.

    When I was a student here at Fortis Institute I had some instructors that were really, really inspiring to me; they helped me to learn the material, they helped me to have a passion for the human body and learning how the body works and how massage therapy can help the human body.
