The Dedicator

Guilene Aricia Nelzy approached her college education with resolve in her heart. She was anxious to join the health care profession despite a little nervousness about handling patients.

“I wanted to pursue my goal to become a medical assistant, and Brown Mackie College — Miami really went the extra mile,” says Guilene. “At first, I was afraid because I thought I may not be able to pull through. I told myself I will just give it a chance. Everything went well for me and I graduated with a 3.58 GPA.”

Graduation day came in 2014 when Guilene received a Diploma in Medical Assistant from Brown Mackie College — Miami. She was thrilled to join the staff at Horizon Medical Services in Tamarac, Florida as a medical assistant. “My primary responsibilities are to escort patients to exam rooms, record vital signs, and draw blood. “I am now calm and focused as I work with patients,” she says.

Common daily responsibilities also include performing EKG and urinalysis tests, scheduling patients, charting, and providing excellent customer service. “Brown Mackie College — Miami prepared me so well that the doctors were impressed with my skills. I was already aware of the tasks I needed to accomplish daily as a medical assistant,” she says. “I was fully prepared and ready for the workforce.”

Guilene was impressed by how much the instructors care about students at Brown Mackie College — Miami. “If you did not show up for class, they would actually call you,” she says. She enjoyed the hands-on program, which includes clinical work in the medical lab.

“If you believe in yourself, you will succeed. Never give up on what you believe in,” says Guilene. “When others in my life doubted me, I believed in my heart. I proved them wrong. I was dedicated to make it in a new profession, and to make my mother proud. I have succeeded.”
