Medical Assisting Graduate is Promoted to Team Lead

Medical Assisting Graduate is Promoted to Team Lead

Jun 24, 2013

DeJara Johnson, a graduate of the Louisville Campus, is working as team lead medical assistant at JenCare Neighborhood Medical Center. She started at JenCare as a medical assistant in July of 2012, when the Broadway location where she works opened, then received the promotion to team lead during her 90-day evaluation.

DeJara, who has worked in the medical field for over 20 years, was working as a certified nursing assistant when she enrolled in the pharmacy technician and medical billing and coding diploma programs at American National University. “The schedule was able to fit where I could still work and be able to provide for my family while I was going to school,” she recalled of her decision to attend National.

She graduated with both diplomas in 2005 then transferred many of her  credits into her medical assisting associate degree program which she completed a short year later.

DeJara enjoys working for JenCare, who was recently recognized as a Distinguished Community Employer by the Louisville Campus. (To read more about the campus’s relationship with JenCare, visit the College’s website and see the May 13th issue of the National News.)

As a single mother, she particularly appreciates the Monday through Friday work schedule that allows her time with her family. She also feels that there’s room to grow even further in her career at JenCare. “They give you the chances and opportunity to prove yourself. The only one at JenCare that can hold you back is yourself,” she said.
