A new path towards success


Thursday, June 12, 2014

Charlease Cohen enjoyed working in the health care field before deciding to complete a college degree. She held positions as a certified nursing assistant and medical technologist. When unexpectedly laid off from a job she loved, she took time to rethink her direction.

“I wanted to create a better life and career for myself,” she says. “I was always curious about patient charts, medical coding, and how doctors' offices and hospitals kept up with all the patients and appointments. I wanted to become the person responsible for doing this job.”

She began a new phase of life at Brown Mackie College — Greenville. Charlease excelled in her classes and graduated as an honor roll student in 2012, earning an Associate of Applied Science degree in Health Care Administration. She joined the staff at Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc. in Greenville, South Carolina as a Patient Care Coordinator.

Charlease’s busy days include managing the office, scheduling appointments, sending and receiving paperwork, uploading information to patient charts, and answering phones. “I enjoy using the knowledge I gained in college on a daily basis,” she says. “It’s good to be part of a great team and to be appreciated for who I am and for the quality of my work.”

She credits Brown Mackie College — Greenville not only for her academic work, but also for her interview preparedness, work ethic, and the experience she gained during her time in a shadow program at an assisted living facility. “It all helped me tremendously,” she says.

Charlease sees her work as a great opportunity to meet and help people from all walks of life, and to gain further knowledge on how the administrative side of health care works. She plans to return to Brown Mackie College — Greenville for her bachelor degree. “I wanted to achieve a better future at Brown Mackie College — Greenville,” she says. “I definitely made the right decision.”
