Autumn Evans was ready for a career, not just a job. After a few life events that motivated her to finally take the next step, she is a proud Pima Medical graduate. She is even furthering her education through the Health Care Administration associate degree program.
“Life before Pima Medical looked like … dead-end jobs, no career, working call center to call center with no stability. I was never proud of myself. Two things happened that motivated me to make a change. My son’s father passed away suddenly and that made me to want to go back to school. Also, around that time my cousin, who had attended Pima Medical Institute, challenged me to check it out. I knew the medical field would provide stability and I was drawn to the Medical Administrative Assistant program (now called Health Care Administration Certificate.) I decided to simply go take the tour. Once there, I could see myself sitting in those classrooms wearing those blue scrubs and finally making something of myself, so I enrolled.
I had a great experience. I had tried taking courses at the community college before, but I never finished a class. At Pima Medical, I had a relationship with my instructors, my classes were small and our instructors kept us interested. It helps that you can see the end and see the career you’ll have and it motivates you to finish. I am very proud of myself for completing the program and now I love my job!
I am enrolled in Pima Medical’s online Health Care Administration associate degree and I’m excited about furthering my education. I hadn’t accomplished something in a long time and it felt so good to finish my program and to have a career. I finally made myself proud!”
