Approach everything with a positive attitude. Colleagues, friends and family don't want to hear negativity, and it's such a waste of time. Be the problem-solver rather than the problem itself and you'll go a long way in life.

I try to approach my professional and personal life in much the same way...with patience. I've found if I wait before I react to a situation, I'm more likely to fully hear what has actually been said rather than what I think has been said. Then I feel I have all the information to take the appropriate course of action.

Get to know Jodi...

  • What led you to this program of study? I was placed in the medical field when I joined the Air Force at the age of 18, and loved it so much I pursued a career in Health Care. I have a deep desire to help others: patients and their families as well as students and their families. It's extremely satisfying to share what I've learned with students and give back to the community any way I can.
  • What would you tell a student who was on the fence about attending a program of study in your department at IntelliTec? Do your research and decide what you want to achieve upon completing the course of study, and then talk to the program supervisor or an instructor to see if these goals are attainable. Their real-life experience can provide a wealth of information about pitfalls to avoid and the best path to take to reach your goals.
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students in your department, what would it be? Set one goal at a time, and more specifically, set small and attainable goals. Write each one down so you're accountable and make a plan outlining how you will reach them. This makes getting to your bigger goals much less overwhelming. Oh, and turn off the TV and Facebook! These two things take up so much useful study time, and neither one will help you achieve your goals.
  • Furthermore, what life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? Never stop learning!! Go into every job or aspect of life with the belief that there is always something more you can learn, even if you think you already know how to do something. Listen and learn how others do it, as it may be better than how you do it. Take constructive criticism as constructive, not as someone picking on you; it can truly be a learning and developmental tool. Yes, it hurts to hear sometimes, but if you accept and learn from it you'll improve as a person.

It's always helpful when teachers can relate the challenges of managing parenting, employment and school. Peggy fully gets this - she faces the same time constraints as her students. But ultimately, she believes in her students' abilities to be successful in and out of the classroom.

Get to know Peggy...

  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students in your department, what would it be? Don't let anyone tell you, "You cannot make it" including yourself. You can if you really want it badly enough.
  • What would you tell a student who struggling to find the balance in their personal/professional/academic life? First, I tell them they are the mirror image of me, because it's what I do every day. I share with them my own daily struggles and remind them to take it one day at a time. Ultimately, they have to make the decision to not accept failure.
  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? The students; watching them succeed is very rewarding. There's nothing like that moment when they cross the stage at graduation.
  • Share something unique about yourself you believe might help a student get to know you outside of school. I love outdoor activities like boating, fishing and camping but have a secret liking for ballroom dancing.

Jenni brings a fresh perspective to the Medical Assisting Program. As a new teacher, she strives to interject humor and a real life approach in the classroom. She believes all of her students are amazing, and she encourages them to face their struggles head on and always have a goal in mind.

Get to know Jenni...

  • What led you to this program of study? While medicine can be challenging, it can also be one of the most rewarding things you can do. I chose this field not only because of that reason but because I wanted to help people. As a medical assistant, I felt that I was giving back by helping people in the community.
  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? When I worked at Urgent Care, the part of medical assisting I liked the most was the daily challenge. We worked together putting all the pieces of patient care together. Now as a program supervisor, I assist students and help empower them to reach their goals to become an integral part of the medical community.
  • Have you faced a difficult/challenging time in your life? If so, how did you resolve the issue? One of the most challenging times was during the time I decided to further my education; I was going to school full time, working full time, and taking care of my kids full time. Time management and determination helped me reach my goals.
  • What life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? It's not the job you do; it's how you do the job.
