In this Alumni Spotlight we catch up with Jessica Varcelli, Surgical Technologist graduate and current employee of Cleveland Clinic.
I have been working at the Cleveland Clinic in the Cardiovascular Department for 2 years.
What I like most about my career is being able to work alongside with the most brilliant cardiovascular surgeons in the world.
My future goals include returning to school to pursue my bachelor's degree in nursing, certify for registered nurse first assist and ultimately be a part of the transplant fly-out team for hearts and lungs to retrieve organs.
The best advice I can give is to work hard and love what you do. This profession can provide amazing opportunities in life and take you anywhere you want to go.
In my spare time I like to relax on my boat, swim with my dogs, ski when I can and spend time with my family.
