Medical Assisting Program Graduate

Fortis Institute in Nashville

Before I attended school I worked at a check cashing place for five years.  I felt like I was going nowhere it was just an on-going cycle.

I called my husband and I said, I have to do something.  I can’t do this anymore.  It’s time to go to school and find something for me; so that’s what I did.  We worked on it.

I cleared everything that I was doing.  I stopped working just to come to school to make sure that there were no obstacles that would hinder me completing my schooling.

My education has made a big difference because now I feel like I’m in a career and I don’t have to be embarrassed if someone says, oh where do you work?  I was kind of embarrassed at other places; I’m good now.  I’m not embarrassed.  I can shout it to everybody now.
