I was a stay at home mom before I started attending Carrington College CA-Sacramento. Growing up my mother was a medical assistant and still is today. Somehow she was able to work full time as well as be a full time mother and wife. She was always present for every event in our lives. After the birth of my first child I wanted to follow my mother’s footsteps and be there everyday for Makayla and have a good career. It wasn’t until the birth of my second child, Azael, when I decided to start my journey towards becoming a medical assistant. After dealing with “boo boo’s” and other medical issues not only from my kids but helping friends and other family members I realized I loved it and was ready to go back to school to further my education. With the help of Carrington College I know I can reach my goals and maybe one day work side by side with my hero and inspiration… My mother.
