Courtney Berry Says She Had No Direction, Until She Found Her Calling at Pima Medical Institute

Follow your passion for a career in healthcare and make a difference.

Courtney Berry decided she needed to end the cycle of retail jobs and random classes at community college. She found Pima Medical Institute’s East Valley campus and now loves her career in Healthcare!

“I was 30 years old and my life was at a standstill. I had been working retail for 12 years and I was constantly taking random classes at the community college, but I had no direction or plan. That’s when I saw a TV advertisement for Pima Medical Institute, made an appointment and met my admissions advisor, Robert. He was so pleasant and explained the process for a career in the medical field. I enrolled in the Medical Administrative Assistant program (now called Health Care Administrative Assistance Certificate) and I finally had a plan!

It wasn’t easy. I was working a lot and struggling with some personal issues, but my instructors helped and pushed me. One thing I loved about Pima Medical is that everyone encouraged me and no one would let me give up. My externship was challenging because it was something brand new. After all, I had only worked retail for 12 years and that’s all I knew. But I got more comfortable as time when on and it was very rewarding. It was a great celebration when I finished and graduated.

I enjoy my new career as a medical receptionist. Going through this program has stretched me so much! Now I am considering going back to Pima Medical to get my associate degree. I know I can do more. After years of wasting time trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I finally have a career. For anyone like me who is trying to figure out a career path, I suggest you come to Pima Medical.”
