After earning associate’s degrees in surgical technology and medical assisting, Christina was hired by Dr. Hensley following an interview with him. “She was very sincere and seemed very interested in the job. She was also enthusiastic about working for me,” he recalled.
Christina developed a passion for caring for others at a young age, and Dr. Hensley said she is one of the finest medical assistants that he’s worked with in his career. “I have never had better,” he said. “She is personable, reliable, conscientious, caring, and enthusiastic. I can always count on her to think ahead and be prepared,” said Dr. Hensley. “She knows what she is doing and answers patients’ questions well.”
Christina first came to American National University after becoming a certified nursing assistant through a vocational program in high school. She decided to continue her education to advance in her career, and enrolled at National after discovering that it was one of the only schools in the area which offered a class schedule that would allow her to work while attending school. At National, She enjoyed learning from instructors who were professionals from the medical field.
