Pennsylvania State College (Liberal Arts)
AAS Kaplan Unitervisity (Master's)
I have been a Medical Assistant Instructor for post secondary schools since October of 2010 and teach Phlebotomy, Certification Review, Medical Terminology, Disease and Treatment Medical Office Applications and Law and Ethics (one of my favorite courses). I received my Master's Degree in Healthcare Management in December of 2015 from Kaplan University and am looking to pursue a Master's Certification in Public Health Leadership. I have my BA in Liberal Arts from Pennsylvania State College and specialized in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis on Labor Law and employment relations.
I have been an instructor in adult education for over 10 years. Most recently my instructing experience has been in career schools however; I have worked with women and youths inside of the criminal justice system as well. I have had a well-rounded career as a Medical Assistant working in various aspects of the field including family practice, pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, ENT, OB, GYN and infectious diseases. I have been certified as a medical assistant for over 20 years and got my start here at York County School of Technology. I am also certified in phlebotomy and work as a mobile phlebotomist.
I embrace everything about my career including teaching. I especially loved working with infectious disease doctors and began my career as an HIV Intervention Specialist/ Counselor in 1998. My passion in research and microbiology helped me to make the decision to continue my education in public health.
Favorite moments in class:
I like seeing my students grow from shy first- term to confident mature professional students in their chosen career field. This happens right in front of my eyes. At the same time, my relationship with students grows from instructor to mentor to colleague. That's pretty cool!
When I am not with my students I love creating. I have a passion for the arts and am fond of holistic mind, body, and wellness. I enjoy relaxing using different meditation techniques and balance a life of world, life and family. I also enjoy traveling and have pondered the thought of educating others in another county.
Best thing about teaching:
The best part of teaching is making a difference in the life of a student that is on a new career path and guiding them through the bumps on the road as they find their way to success.
Anthropology was one of my first classes at Pennsylvania State I received a 3.7 in this class. I studied cultural anthropology, which is the study of cultures, gender, race, affluence, kinship, marriage, religion and systems of symbolic expression (language and art), and vary significantly from one society to another. I was very intrigued at how the people evolved from hunter and gatherers to a more industrialized society. This raises questions such as:
Are hunter-gatherers in the Kalahari Desert more affluent than people in the US? Does race exist elsewhere in the world or is it purely an American phenomenon? Are there more than 2 genders? A lot of anthropology is embedded in sociology which studied extensively in college.
I have 6 credits of public speaking from college and currently I have been speaking to large groups for over 10 years. I am a highly confident speaker who is accurate, competent, credible, intelligent, knowledgeable, likable, and believable . Confidence in public speaking is a true asset as well as being a natural.
I have 9 credits of Criminal Justice and 3 credits in World religion both of which are fascinating. I was excited to learn about both of these subjects and worked with women and youths housed in the criminal justice system.
I have a very dynamic personality and love to teach while having fun learning.
