Student Enrolls With Encouragement from a Friend

Jul 28, 2014

Mark Sell recently enrolled in the accounting program at the Richmond Campus after his friend, Teresa Rice, told him about the great experience that she’d had in her medical assisting and pharmacy technician programs at American National University.

Teresa completed her medical assisting program earlier this year, and she’s continuing her education in the pharmacy technician program.  “It’s been a dream of mine since I was four years old,” she says of working in the medical field.

When Mark lost his job, Teresa urged him to use the time off to train for a more rewarding career.  He visited the campus as a volunteer when Teresa needed to practice drawing blood during her medical assisting program.  He liked the small class that Teresa was in, and he enrolled soon after.  “Since I couldn’t find a job, I thought it was a good opportunity to come [to school],” says Mark.

Mark has always excelled at math, and he’s enjoying his accounting program.  After graduating, he looks forward to gaining experience working in the field, and he then hopes to open his own accounting or tax preparation business.
