"My mother was a Registered Nurse, but I had never really thought about the medical field. This was until my best friend was 2-3 months in her Medical Assistant program, and one day told me I needed to register, so I did. "

    The most influential people in my life are my daughters and that is because I would love to secure their future as well as mine. This last accomplishment doing the medical assistant has really, really enhanced my broadness of life. I graduated with a 3.6 which I never thought I could do, so they are very proud of their mom.

    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.

    I actually was pregnant during my time here at Fortis and now that I have two little babies I am able to be home at night, I am able to home on weekends which I love and they love, I get more time with them.

    I had many unexpected surprises during my long road to success, but through a wonderful support system at home and at Fortis Online, I pushed through the small barriers and successfully graduated with honors.

    What made me go into HVAC was I have always been a person that liked to tinker with electronics. Even as a young child I was kind of leaning toward that type of thing, hooking up radios and whatnot, trying to figure how things worked. So when I came across this program I knew it would be perfect for my lifestyle.
