The Right Schooling Fit Paid Off for this Renton Campus Pharmacy Technician Graduate

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

Amy Dobbs earned her Pharmacy Technician certificate from our Renton Campus back in 2014. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, she found a career that helps people and provides for her and her daughter. Here is her story.

“When I came to Pima Medical Institute, I was a single mom with a teenage daughter. I had attended college in the past but was left with a useless degree working a job that wasn’t paying the bills. I like helping people but don’t really like to touch them, so the Pharmacy Technician program was a perfect fit for me.

Since graduating in 2014, I’ve held various roles within the pharmacy community; from retail, to long-term care, to home infusion where I am currently working. I am part of an amazing team at Providence Infusion and Pharmacy where I get to help patients that are receiving home IV treatments.  I’ve also recently expanded my knowledge and have moved into a billing role.

In the seven and a half years since I’ve graduated from Pima Medical, I’ve doubled my income and have been able to provide my daughter with a life we would never have had before. We take multiple vacations a year, we have our own home, and we both drive great vehicles and she is working on becoming a pilot. We have a life we never dreamed possible, and I was able to build amazing friendships in the process.

Pima Medical was definitely the right choice for me. Most recently, I’ve been looking into continuing my education and going for a bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration. I can’t thank Pima Medical enough for what they’ve done for my family and me. I wake up every morning excited to come to work and help people. I love what I do!”

If you’ve considered a career in healthcare, but don’t want a lot of direct patient contact, the Pharmacy Technician program could be right for you. Learn more now!
