Graduate Highlight - Medical Assistant Program - Lauren Rico
Forced from her home, Lauren Rico desired a better career but could barely stay afloat, even with two jobs. Stautzenberger College's medical assistant program was just what Ms. Rico was seeking. Between her classroom lessons at Maumee campus and externship at Spring Valley OBGYN/PEDS, she learned how to provide excellent patient care. Not only would a medical assistant career put her in a better place financially, it would allow her to live out her passion of helping others. She was eventually offered a position at Spring Valley, which she only declined because she already had plans to move out of state.
Her own hard work and determination earned her a degree, but Ms. Rico attributes her success to her instructor's encouraging words. “If it wasn't for my instructor Mariann, I wouldn't have made it,” says Ms. Rico. “Hands down, I couldn't have done it without her. I'm still very close to her.”
