Jo Ann Violette

For the past 15 years, Jo Ann Violette worked as a bakery clerk at a local supermarket, but always wanted to work in a more professional environment.

A friend of hers worked in a hospital billing department which sparked her interest in the Health Claims Specialist program. After looking into it further, she decided to enroll at the Salter School in Fall River, MA to pursue a new career in that field.

Jo Ann had some concerns going back to school. "I was very unsure that I could do it with four kids at home, a part time job, and my everyday responsibilities." 

With the help of her friends she made at the campus and the support she received from the Salter staff, Jo Ann was relieved from her concerns. "They all felt like family. They were all interested and concerned with your advances and downfalls, helping you through whatever you were going through."

Jo Ann excelled at school, receiving a perfect attendance award, a Student of the Term Award, and was even selected to welcome and speak with newly enrolled students at their orientation. 

After graduating with a 4.0 GPA and passing her Certified Professional Coder exam, Jo Ann recently accepted a position in the billing department at University Orthopedics in Providence, RI. 

"I proved to myself that I CAN do it! I also consider myself a good role model to my kids by teaching them that if you work for what you want, you can do it and you can do it successfully."The Salter School
