Medical Assisting Graduate Highlight – Sarah Fraser

Sarah Fraser Professional PhotoWhy did you choose to pursue your education at Ohio Valley College of Technology?

I chose OVCT because many members of my family have attended school here over the years and they all said how much they enjoyed it. I wanted to give the school a try and I am so glad that I did!


Why did you choose to study Medical Assisting?

I wanted to do something in the medical field but wasn’t sure what. I came to the school and after meeting the faculty, other students, and the instructors my heart was set on the Medical Assisting program.


What was your favorite part of attending the school?

My favorite part was how helpful everyone was here. Any issues I had were solved and there were no questions left unanswered.


What are you doing now?

After completing the Medical Assisting program and becoming a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, I came back to the school for the EKG Workshop course and earned my C.E.T. certification. I am also furthering my education. I am taking the Phlebotomy program at OVCT, working at a local assisted living facility, and I plan to continue my education and become a Mortician.


EKG Workshop Sarah & Mrs. BloorWhat advice do you have for new students?

My advice is to stick with it. I know life gets rough and things come up that can be discouraging, but try your best, study hard, be prepared, and always remember what your goals and dreams are because they will all come together in the end.


Do you have anyone you want to thank?

I want to thank my Mom and brothers who offered unconditional support, motivation, and love. I also want to thank the teachers who showed me so much compassion and understanding. Mrs. Scott is the best teacher a Medical Assistant could ever ask for! She cares so much for the students and it shows every day in her classroom! Mrs. Scott was always smiling and offering a helping hand to ensure we were all on a successful path in the medical field. I also want to thank Mrs. Bloor for being the best EKG Technician teacher around! Mrs. Bloor makes class fun and I learned so much from her. I am so thankful to her for all the time she has dedicated to our class.


Who was my biggest supporter?

Off campus, my Mom was my biggest supporter. She always made sure I had everything I needed for school and made sure I attended every event possible at the college. On campus, I cannot narrow it down to just one person! All the faculty and instructors were so supportive and made sure they did everything in their power for us all to succeed on our OVCT journeys. I couldn’t have asked for more. Being at OVCT has been a wonderful experience from start to finish!
