Healthcare Provides Graduate With Rewarding Work , 2015

Sha-Love Williams first joined the workforce as an employee in the food service industry. She wasn’t thrilled with her job, but fell into a workday routine. After several lackluster years, a friend suggested she explore opportunities in the healthcare field. Sha-Love joined the staff at a nursing facility and was hooked on the profession from the start.

Working with people seemed to be a natural fit. “I tried it and I loved it,” says Sha-Love. “After four years in the field, I decided it was time to go to school. I wanted to gain more knowledge and, of course, increase my earning potential.”

One visit to Brown Mackie College - St. Louis reassured her that she was making the right decision. One class a month appealed to her. “Everyone was so friendly when I arrived,” she says. “They had a lot of ways to help and support the students.”

She worked two jobs while attending school. “I was exhausted,” she says. “At times I felt like just saying, ‘Forget class,’ but I pulled through.” Sha-Love graduated from Brown Mackie College – St. Louis with a Medical Assistant certificate. She was ready to secure the professional position she longed for.

She finds career satisfaction as a medical assistant at Probst, Behm and Clancy OBGYN Inc. “I set up the exam rooms every morning, making sure they are fully stocked,” says Sha-Love. “When patients arrive, I call them back one by one to record vitals, take weight, and get a urine specimen. After that, they are ready to see the doctor.” Sha-Love enjoys the patient interaction and care. “Occasionally, I get the chance to assist with surgeries,” she says, “I love this job and I have never been happier.”

Priscilla Perez

MRI Coordinator

Name: Priscilla Perez

Employer: Path MRI

Externship Turns to Full-Time Employment for MRI Coordinator, 2016

Priscilla Perez immediately liked the idea of focusing on one class per month, instead of five or six offered by traditional colleges. Also, she discovered she could help people in the healthcare field from an office setting, which appealed to her. That’s why she chose Brown Mackie College - Miami to pursue her degree.

During her studies, Priscilla faced challenges in the form of family issues, and even facial surgery. “I thought about giving up, but the faculty at Brown Mackie College - Miami and my family helped me push through adversity,” she says. “The faculty always had bright spirit and great attitude. They wouldn’t let you fail or quit.”

As a 2016 graduate with an Associate of Science degree in Health Care Administration, she was anxious to begin her new career. After working at Path MRI in Miami, Florida, to complete her externship, Priscilla joined the staff as MRI Coordinator and administrative assistant. “I worked so hard just to prove that I deserved a spot in their team,” says Priscilla. “I am now in charge of entering all patient records into the system. I work directly with attorneys; sending client and patient MRI results. I also make appointments, and do the filing and faxing.”

Priscilla felt well prepared to enter the workforce. “I use my education on the job every day from classes such as Medical Terminology, Medical Insurance Processing, and coding,” she says. “Also the hands-on training and real-life teachings proved invaluable to me in the workplace. I got where I am today because of Brown Mackie College - Miami and my externship at this wonderful company.”

Priscilla says she works daily to “give patients a wonderful experience from the moment they walk in to the time they walk out. Seeing their smiles makes it all worthwhile.”
