Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Assisting and Medical Billing and Coding
Taryn Herrera has spent the past eight years helping students succeed at Carrington College, and she’s so excited to serve as National Dean of Medical Programs. She previously worked as an Instructor, Program Director, Student Success Center Manager and Academic Support Specialist here at Carrington.
Herrera loves helping students take the next step toward their future careers. “I really enjoy that feeling of accomplishment, that moment you share where they go from ‘Huh’ to ‘Ah-ha’. You feel pride and accomplishment at the same time – not for yourself, but for them,” she said.
Herrera brings a strong educational background and plenty of real-world experience to her role. She has a Master’s Degree in Health Administration and in Public Administration, and she plans to finish her Doctoral program in the future.
When Herrera isn’t working with students, she loves spending time with family, listening to oldies music and shopping at thrift stores. She’s also a big fan of Star Wars and Star Trek.
