Megan King – Student Highlight

Megan King has spent much of her life taking care of people. She has been a caregiver for over fifteen years. She has always had a passion for helping people and always known she wanted to be in the medical field. Her mom holds a very special place in her heart and she always told Megan she was capable of so much more. She knew her mom wanted her to go to school and she herself wanted something more.

Megan had attended Strayer University for one year directly after high school, working toward a degree in Criminal Justice. She started out taking general education credits. She had so much going on and her teachers weren’t involved, so she felt a lack of support. Megan didn’t continue and went into the workforce. She later decided she was going to pursue her education again and starting looking into her options. She checked online reviews and had known several people who attended West Virginia Junior College and they all had great things to say. They liked how the teachers and staff get really involved and are there to support you. So far Megan’s favorite class at WVJC Online has been her medical terminology course. She has always been drawn to learning about healthcare and the study of it, so she really enjoyed that class. Her favorite part is how she can work at her own pace and own time. Megan says, “I would recommend this school to anyone. I love it!”

Megan knew she wanted to continue her career in the medical field, and with a degree in Medical Office Administration, and the medical career training she’ll be receiving, her plans are to work in a local physician’s office just like her mom. She wants to be settled somewhere with a new, more stable career and a place to call home. After getting through her medical office courses and earning her certifications, she will be better prepared to begin her new career. Megan also plans on coming back and taking her CPT and ICD coding certification.
