I am grateful for the opportunity I was given to complete certificates while attending Johnston Community College. I received the Health Insurance Specialist, Medical Administrative Specialist, Records Technician, Office Administration, Advanced Office Administration, and Office Publication Design certificates while completing my two-year degrees. The certificates were a plus when applying for jobs while in school to completing my Office Administration and Medical Office Administration degrees. After graduating from Johnston Community College, I landed a job with our local hospital working as a billing representative for Home Health and Hospice. After just 18 short months, I was chosen to move into the billing coordinator position. Hard work and determination pay off. I am very thankful I chose Johnston Community College to gain the knowledge and experience I needed to be prepared for my career now. I would not be as confident and successful in my career without the encouragement and dedication of the staff at Johnston Community College. Thank you!
