I was already thinking about going back to school, but I was unsure about what I wanted to do. After seeing a commercial for Herzing, I visited the Toledo campus. The staff members were very helpful and friendly. With their assistance, I chose to go into the medical field.

I chose the medical assisting program because there are members of my family who have some serious medical issues that make it so they require care in the home. Becoming a certified medical assistant makes me feel that I can be of help not only to my family members, but to others in that situation as well. I love working with people and this program and degree will help me achieve this.

I had two major surgeries while I was attending Herzing and the staff encouraged me to continue with my education and not give up. They made sure that I was able to get around campus with no problems and that I received the help I needed to keep up with my classwork.

I love my instructors and the staff at the Herzing-Toledo campus. Their help and encouragement is what helped me achieve my degree. At the age of 54, who knew that I had this kind of potential? Herzing did, my family and friends did, and finally I did after I saw what I could do. Herzing is the best, and I am possible!
