Storlie’s Story: Meet Our New Medical Assistant Instructor

medical assistant degree

Student Lee Kaltenberg allows Dawn to take her temperature during a classroom demonstration.

Every quarter brings newness to it: new students, new courses and new faculty.  This quarter is no different. Globe University-Madison East has hired a new full-time medical assistant instructor, and it is my pleasure to introduce her.

Meet Dawn Storlie. Dawn brings with her four years of experience working as a medical assistant. She graduated from Northcentral Technical College with a medical assistant degree.  After graduating, she worked for Aspirus in Wausau, Wis., in a clinic with multiple specialties.  Prior to becoming a certified medical assistant, Dawn was in the healthcare field as a certified nurse’s assistant for four years.

With all of this experience, Dawn states, “I do really love family practice as well. I love the patient care aspect of the job and would like to continue that as a casual CMA around the Madison area when I am not working at Globe.”

When asked how her first teaching experience was going she said, “I love it. It is great to be in such small class sizes where I can really interact with and help students understand the concept and apply it to real life situations.”

As much as Dawn loves working, she also loves to take advantage of her time off. In her down time she likes to spend time with her family, enjoys cooking and loves to swim. She also likes to have campfires and cookouts.

Please join me in welcoming Dawn to the team and if you see her around be sure to say hi!
