Why did you choose the Heath Information Technology program?

I was looking for a career change and I found that the Health Information Management field is a dynamic and growing field that offers a variety of opportunities to explore. Being involved in the healthcare system without being a doctor or nurse is something that made me choose to study this field.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

In my career field, working with data and making it meaningful to support decision-making to improve patients' care is very interesting. It is rewarding to know that your little contribution can help to improve patients' care and the entire healthcare system.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

I chose Fox Valley Technical College because they were offering a good English Language Learning program to improve my English skills. I stayed there because I got more than what I was initially there for, such as good support and great educational opportunities.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Fox Valley Technical College gave me confidence and the necessary help to handle the change I decided to make for my career and my life. I am grateful to all the nice people I have met and worked with at Fox Valley Technical College. Fox Valley Technical College offers more than education; it offers hope and help.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

There are so many opportunities in the Health Information Technology field, and the program prepares us for different types of jobs in the field. I expect to find a health data analyst job, but I will need to complete a health data analyst certification program. Meanwhile, I work as a patient service representative.
