What did you do before coming to work at Cumberland Perry AVTS?
I worked for a company that had group homes for individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and chronic medical conditions. I also worked at MedExpress Urgent care.
What made you decide you wanted to teach?
I wanted to be a teacher when I graduated High School but I then became very passionate about health care and nursing. I find that working at CPAVTS gives me the best of both worlds.
How has your first month been?
I have had a great first month. I find that I have students who are engaged and really want to succeed. They put a lot of effort into this program and it makes me want to be a good teacher for them.
What part of the curriculum are you looking most forward to teaching?
I like anatomy so I like the body system units. I also like to set a good foundation with the basic skills like vital signs.
What’s the most important thing you hope to impart on your students?
I want my students to feel confident in themselves and the skills they learn here. I hope that they leave this program as good caregivers and good employees.
