“During the last 16 years, I have been a CMA, medical coordinator, and office manager. I feel that my experience has allowed me to focus my instruction on the day-to-day abilities and knowledge that today’s medical assisting students need.

“In addition to learning the material, I want my students to be able to respond appropriately to real-life situations they may encounter, so I like to put them in those situations in class.

“My greatest reward as an instructor is when I see my students excited about the knowledge they are gaining and their excitement and happiness in their jobs.

“I admire my students’ dedication and desire to be the best medical assistants they can be.”
