Graduate, Medical Assisting Program
“I decided that Sumner was the right choice for me after reading inspiring stories from past graduates”
Celia was a secondary school teacher for at-risk students in a semi-rural public school before attending Sumner College. It gives Celia so much joy to connect with and help people, so it made sense to her to go into medical assisting. Her goal as an MA is to extend more kindness and compassion as part of a strong medical team. Celia decided that Sumner was the right choice for her after reading inspiring stories from past graduates. The program director made it a great experience by providing high quality instruction, resources, and speakers. She said it was beautiful. In the future she would like to work in a pediatric, cardiovascular or oncology clinic. Medical Assisting is just opening the door into the medical assisting profession.
