Alumni Spotlight – Patricia Vasquez

Posted: January 15, 2021 by Diane Smith
 


Patricia Vasquez always knew she wanted to be in the medical field, but didn’t want to deal with blood. She looked into the Medical Administrative Assistant program, now called Health Care Administration Certificate. She graduated in 2013 and is now enjoying a successful career doing what she loves.
 
Here is her story.
 
“After working at Verizon Wireless for 12 years, I felt like I was going nowhere. I researched and found Pima Medical Institute's Medical Administrative Assistant program and decided it would be a good fit for me. I had always wanted to get into the medical field, but wasn't sure I wanted to deal with blood, so that program appealed to me. I had lots of family support and my kids and I were able to move back in with my parents while I went back to school.
 
My instructors were great and really helped me make the transition back to being a student. I had a really good externship experience and upon completion, I was hired at the practice. We have continued to grow and a year and half later the doctor promoted me to the lead administrative assistant, I supervise three people, and the doctor is encouraging me to continue my education. I really enjoy having Pima Medical students come to work in our office and I love my job!”
 
Thank you Pima Medical - I couldn't be happier!”
