Chelsea Keeter is 20 years old and hails from right here in Sioux Falls, S.D. Here, she tells us why she chose to enroll in the medical assistant degree program at Globe University.
Why did you choose your program? I love helping people, and I figure this is the best way to do it. I like the fact that medical assistants are the first ones to see the patient, because it means we get to know them on a more personal level.
What is your favorite part about attending Globe University? There are many things I love about Globe. I love all the people that work/attend this school because they are friendly and will help you out in a heartbeat. I think my favorite part, though, would have to be how hands-on Globe is. I learn by doing things, so it’s definitely my kind of school!
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? Although I grew up here in Sioux Falls, I was actually born on a different continent. I was born in an army hospital in Panama, Central America. I had dual citizenship both there and here in Sioux Falls up until I was 18 years old.
A perfect day off-campus for you would be: A perfect day off-campus for me would have to be spent with my grandma. She is my best friend, and I love hanging out with her. Another part of a perfect day off-campus for me would be sleeping. I love to sleep! I would sleep all day if I could.
How do you picture your life 5 years from now? Five years from now, I picture myself as a Certified Medical Assistant and loving my job. I hope to have met someone who I could possibly spend the rest of my life with and that I have a nice home. I also picture myself being so grateful to Globe University for helping me achieve my goals.
