Why did you choose this major? I have worked in the medical field for 14 years as an EMT, in the ER, and as a medical
assistant in a surgeon’s office. The doctor built his own surgery center and I needed
to get my degree for career advancement.
What made you choose Allegany College of Maryland? It is local, affordable, and I am able to be home with my family, which is very important.
How has your experience been at ACM? I love it! I absolutely love it! Small class sizes with a diversity of students
in ages and backgrounds. In a big university, you don’t have the family atmosphere.
Why would you recommend ACM to future students? For the same reasons stated above; it’s a family atmosphere with small class sizes.
What are some challenges you have encountered as a college student? The amount of time and work that goes into studying. I have to pick and choose my
priorities and sometimes it becomes difficult.
What advice would you give future college students? Don’t ever give up, at all. It is never too late. Put your mind to it, have a good
support system, and you can do it!
