Interview with WTI Graduate, Kennedi Green – RMA Student
Kennedi did an externship at Freeman Occumed in Carthage and was hired on there while on an externship.
Why did you choose the Medical Assistant program?
I wanted to better my life. I have always wanted to be in the medical field, to follow in my mother’s footsteps, and I have always enjoyed helping people and felt that this was a career that I could do that.
What did you enjoy most about WTI? Why?
I loved the hands on experience. I am the type of person that learns better with applying my learning with hands on application.
What are your career goals?
I would eventually like to go back to school to be an RN.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Spend time with my family, especially my daughter Callie.
Who do you admire? Why?
My mother – she raised two children on her own while going to school and working full-time. She has always supported my brother and I and pushed us towards our goals.
Kennedi says, “While at WTI, the hands on experience which was taught by the instructors, were valuable tools that I could use during my externship and later on after being hired by my externship site. During my two month employment, I have already acquired my DATIA certification along with my breath/alcohol certification. I loved the whole experience at WTI!”
