Sierra Warrick, a student at East Ohio College pursuing her Associate Degree in Medical Assisting, was previously enrolled at another university seeking a degree in Business Management. Sierra wasn’t happy with her experience there. She felt that classes were too long and that her teachers never made a personal connection with students.
Sierra made the decision to attend East Ohio because she was looking for a college where she could earn her degree in a healthcare program as quickly as possible, and she liked the personal connection of the instructors and staff. Having no previous medical background, she felt that short-term medical training was the way to go.
Sierra loves the atmosphere created by teachers, staff, and other students at East Ohio and how the fast-paced classes allow her to earn her degree quickly. She specifically states that both Mr. Ream and Mrs. Hedrick really care about their students and help to ensure that they are successful.
Following graduation, Ms. Warrick hopes to be employed in the local community and to work a schedule that allows her to spend time with her fiancée and two-year-old son. Her five-year plan includes being married and financially stable so that her family can buy their own house. When asked if she would refer a friend to East Ohio, Sierra states, “Absolutely! I already did and he has already started classes and I will continue to.”
