WVJC Online’s Medical Office Administration program has many advantages. One of the greatest is the flexibility that exists to work within your own schedule and timeframe. This flexibility is what attracted Kylee Wood to the program when she started. For Kylee, being a mom and going to school had to work together. “WVJC offered me a way to get my degree without having to stop being with my children,” Kylee says. Another advantage that WVJC Online offers is a small class environment with hands-on learning opportunities. This was important to Kylee based on her past experience in a university setting.
Kylee knew that she wanted a career in the medical field. She had worked in the field and the opportunities for success were plentiful with the right training and certifications. Kylee worked with WVJC’s Admissions and Financial Aid departments to work out the details and began working her way through the 18 month associate degree program. Kylee’s favorite part about WVJC was the people. “The professors were so understanding and I enjoyed being able to learn in the comfort of my own home. Kacey Eagle was my favorite professor. She was always helpful and very sweet.” Kacey is the Allied Health Program Director at WVJC.
Before Kylee knew it, her 18 months were over and she was graduating. WVJC’s Career Management Department assisted Kylee through the job search process where she ended up working at a pediatrics office close to home. “They are a great group of people to work for and I am proud to be a part of their team.” Kylee has a host of responsibilities, which include checking in patients, working in the front office, and determining insurance eligibility.
