Medical Assisting Was a Clear Path for Mother Daughter Duo
Jun 30, 2015
In just a few short weeks, Knoxville Campus medical assisting student Crystal Muncey will be graduating, and her daughter Kayla will then be half way to her own graduation from the same medical assisting program. Crystal has been a volunteer rescuer and firefighter for over ten years and has had a strong influence on her daughter, who also volunteered for the fire department.
“It was just a great fit for us,” Crystal explained of their decision to enroll at National College. “I looked into other programs in Knoxville, but the small class sizes [at National] really got my attention. The teachers have been very supportive and make it fun to learn. The staff is also very encouraging because they’re always asking me how things are going.”
Kayla shares her mother’s feelings about National, saying, “The teachers make themselves available to work with you and to make sure that you understand the information.”

Crystal’s career goal is to become a registered medical assistant and to work in an emergency room, where she can still practice her trauma care but to a greater extent in a clinical rather than a road-side setting. Daughter Kayla plans to continue her education after graduating from National College by also becoming certified in phlebotomy.
“Do what you love because it’s never too late,” they advise.
