For years, Genevieve Gere ’19 considered going into the medical field. She had earned a bachelor’s degree in communications, worked in human resources and been a stay-at-home mom, but she never shook the attraction to healthcare.
"So, I went to an open house at Cabarrus College, learned about medical assisting and I just felt it was a perfect fit,” said Gere. “Everybody was professional, just knowledgeable, and it was really the environment. It’s so apparent that they strive for excellence in all that they do.”
Gere remembers her time at the college fondly, from learning just how much classmates and staff loved iced coffee (or was it the caffeine?) during a fundraiser, to learning the importance of documentation from program chair Rachel “If you didn’t document it, it didn’t happen” Houston.
After completing her degree and working for a few years, Gere finds that others in the field perk up when they learn she went to Cabarrus College. “I feel as though Cabarrus College, the name speaks for itself,” she said. “It definitely gave me a solid foundation that I’ve been able to build upon. They really pride themselves on being the best in the field. The environment, the student-to-faculty ratio. I mean, I can just go on and on about all the positive things.”
