Student Highlight – Jordan Karickhoff

Bridgeport Medical Office Administration

Jordan Karickhoff is set to graduate at the end of this month with her Associates Degree in Medical Office Administration.  Her excitement to graduate and begin her career is visible every day at the West Virginia Junior College Bridgeport Campus.  Jordan attended West Virginia University immediately following graduating from high school and stayed for one semester. She enjoyed her classes but knew that they would not take her where she wanted to go. 

After leaving WVU, she heard about WVJC and scheduled an appointment to learn more about what we offer and the benefits of attending an 18-month program.  Following her first appointment at WVJC, she could not wait to get started in the Medical Office Administration program.  Jordan chose WVJC because “it was a smaller college.” She says “I probably wouldn’t have gone to another college if I had heard about WVJC before.” Jordan loves the thought of working with medical records in a “little cubicle”. She loves computers, and working in the medical field has always been a dream of hers.   

Jordan’s favorite part about WVJC is the family like structure and “the amazing friends I have made.  No matter the age difference, we all got along and helped each other out.” Her favorite teacher is Ms. Wygal. Jordan says, “She always made every class she taught fun and interesting; especially the CRA field trip to the cadaver lab in Morgantown.” That was an experience Jordan will always carry with her. 

Jordan’s favorite junk food is Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and in the next five years Jordan wants to have an amazing career and hopefully meet the “love of her life.”  However, for now, Jordan is happy that she is graduating from WVJC in the next month and has started the process of applying for jobs to begin her career.  Jordan’s ideal job after graduation is at WVU Medicine, and as her teacher I am proud to announce that she has already had two interviews with them.  Her career is looking bright and successful.  Jordan’s favorite quote to live by is “Chase your dreams but always know the road that’ll lead you home again.”
