New Career Path for Medical Assistant Graduate

Posted On 5/6/2014

For the last six years, Ja'Nell Joyce has been employed at McDonalds. She worked her way up to the position of Manager and then decided to begin a new career path. Ja'Nell made the decision to enroll in Great Lakes Institute of Technology's Medical Assistant program because she wanted a career in the medical field and she wanted to get there fast! "I didn't want it to take forever to get done with school. I've always been a hard worker, I enjoy working and I wanted a program that I could get back to work in a relatively short time."

Ja'Nell graduated in December 2013 and was offered full time employment where she completed her externship with Bay City Podiatry. "The office consists of a friendly and well-rounded staff that balances out the office as a whole. The patients notice how tight knit it is here and we receive a lot of referrals because of this. The doctors and office itself have a very good reputation. I can ask the doctor's questions and they are willing to answer them, so I'm still learning more each day."

"Thank you Great Lakes!!"
