Shirley Conyer is among the first graduating Medical Assistant class at the Harris School in Wilmington, DE. Her decision to go back to school has opened up many doors in her life.
It wasn’t too long ago that Shirley was working as a fork lift operator which was hard on her health. “I have osteoarthritis and the warehouse I worked in was cold and damp. Each year the pain got worse and worse,” she says.
She was intrigued when she saw a newspaper ad for the Harris School’s Medical Assistant program and called to set up an appointment with an Admissions Representative. “I have always loved to help people. I am a people person. After discussing my options with the campus, I had no doubt that this was what I wanted to do. I was so excited!” Shirley expresses.
Shirley chose to retire from her job and start a new career she had passion for. Her fear of going back to school was alleviated when the Harris School taught her proper study habits and techniques that assisted with her school work.
Shirley just completed the Medical Assistant program a few weeks ago and is weighing all possibilities before making a decision on employment. She has been considering Medical Assistant positions at doctor’s offices, clinics, and hospitals. “I want to find the perfect fit for me.”
Shirley is thrilled about the unlimited career options in healthcare. “There are so many different aspects of the medical field. It is just amazing what you can do and all the career choices you are opened up to with your Harris School training!”
