I am a 2015 graduate of Pinnacle Career Institute. Before becoming a medical assistant I was working as a certified nursing assistant. I have been in the medical field since I was 15. After graduation I began working for a pain facility in Kansas City, I love my job. I have since moved on with a physician that began his own practice. I have my dream job finally. I absolutely enjoy going to work everyday, I couldn't have done this without the training I received. Now I am finishing up with the associates program. I have come along way since beginning my journey, no regrets.

I attended PCI from 2013-2014 and received an Associates in applied science. Overall the experience was pretty great for me since i'm not exactly what you would call a traditional student. I worked full time and had to drive about an hour to class when I first started. I was never a good student but with the help of great instructors and student support staff I ended up graduating with a 3.5 GPA, a score I don't think I ever held in highschool.
