This Graduate’s Journey Ended with her Dream Job!

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

Robin Maser had a dream and knew that she needed to advance her education for that to be possible. The school she was attending recommended she look into Pima Medical’s online respiratory therapy bachelor’s degree program. She says the online program helped her to balance work and life, and now she is working in her dream job in critical care transport.

Here is her story.

“As a proud graduate of Pima Medical Institute, my journey from an associate degree in Respiratory Therapy (RT), to a bachelor’s degree, to achieving my dream job as a Critical Care Transport Respiratory Therapist at Children’s Mercy has been nothing short of remarkable. While in school for my associate degree at another college, I was encouraged to continue my education and they recommended Pima Medical’s online Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy program (BSRT). I knew a bachelor’s degree would increase my salary and would be helpful for future supervisory or management positions. The flexibility of online classes made it manageable for me to work full-time at Salem Health, a level II trauma center with a level III NICU, while pursuing my degree.

My dream of working in medical transport began at age 17, when I was a volunteer patient for the local fire department and experienced being air lifted out of our neighborhood. After years of experience as an RT, I landed my dream job. As a Critical Care Transport RT, I participate in various types of transports, from helicopters and fixed wing, to jets and ground transportation, providing support to hospitals nationwide. Children’s Mercy in Kansas City is one of the busiest transport teams, covering a wide range of patients, including neonates, pediatrics, maternal and fetal cases. Working with limited resources challenges me to think on my feet and be creative with patient care. The transport team, comprised of brilliant minds, requires continuous education, certifications and simulations to improve patient care. During my downtime, I enjoy visiting former patients and their families and witnessing their progress.

I love to do outreach at community events, where I hope to inspire young girls to pursue a fulfilling career in healthcare. I’m appreciative of the role Pima Medical played in shaping my success and making my dream job a reality.”
