On the Spot
A routine visit to the doctor is really a visit with an entire team that often now includes a medical assistant. Medical assistants are a growing presence in medical environments, thanks to their flexibility and adaptability since they are cross-trained to perform administrative and clinical duties.
EHOVE Adult Career Center’s Medical Assistant’s current class welcomed back program alumni to their event called “On the Spot” so they could learn firsthand what is happening in the career field. Alumni E'Leesha Wooten (Sandusky), Sara Hasalge (Norwalk), Christina Hartsock (Vermilion), Hayle Stockmaster (Norwalk), Tina Brown (Monroeville), Dawn Demaree (Huron), Katie Farmer (Norwalk), Alaina Griffin (Castalia), Melissa Pease (Sandusky), Rene Perez (Norwalk) and Grace Sessler (Castalia) gave advice to prepare the students for their upcoming certification exams and transition into the career.
"This event allowed EHOVE Medical Assisting alumni an opportunity to share their experiences, advice on preparing for the CMA examination, practicum experience memories, and current employment passions with the current class,” said Tonya Lloyd, EHOVE Medical Assistant Director and Coordinator. “I am so proud and thrilled at how many alumni were able to attend. They came in with such true conviction and passion to share!"
“I really enjoyed listening to everyone's stories about what they do after graduating from EHOVE," said Medical Assistant student Carley Barnett (Willard). "I can't wait to start my career as a medical assistant."
"I absolutely loved coming back and talking with these students," said EHOVE alumni Dawn Demaree (Huron). "I will do it anytime. It was so much fun hearing what they want to do and I loved answering their questions."
"I loved sharing my experiences with the new students," said Christina Hartstock (Vermilion). "To be able to share my class experience and my job experience to other people who are looking to be a part of the medical field is very rewarding."
