When I started, my extern Teresa, showed me what it takes to be a great medical assistant. She took the time to explain things and entrusted me to dive right in. Her mentoring has meant so much to me. I use all the knowledge and empathy I learned from her on a daily basis. I am very thankful to have had such a wonderful mentor. She is even going to support me at my graduation ceremony. I love that lady, she is a perfect example of what healthcare professionals should strive to be.
