Graduate Highlight - Ajalea Cobbs
Family is one of the greatest inspirations. When you are unsure if you are on the right track, it helps to know that someone has your back. When Ajalea Cobbs was uncertain about her future career prospects, it was her family that gave her the motivation and guidance she needed to succeed.
“The support I received from my mom and aunt inspired me to pursue my education as a medical assistant,” says Ms. Cobbs. She then enrolled at Stautzenberger College's Brecksville campus, where the lead medical assistant instructor quickly became like a new family member to her. “Miss Ouri continued to provide support and the best training which prepared me for a career as a medical assistant,” Ms. Cobbs says.
Completing the program sometimes felt difficult for Ms. Cobbs. “It was not always easy,” she recalls. “Balancing work and school made it very challenging at times, but the outcome was worth it.” With the support of her family, she was able to graduate in January of 2019. She completed her externship at Walk-In Urgent Care in Canton, Ohio, where she continued to gather necessary skills for her new career. Currently, Ms. Cobbs is pursuing two different employment opportunities as a medical assistant.
