Cynthia G., Medical Coding & Billing Student
"Love my blended MCB class!! So informative and Mrs Shackelford is awesome!!! Going back to school has been a great experience both professionally and personally which I credit both the school and especially the instructors and staff. Mrs. Shackelford's instructive patterns well accommodated objectives given to each module. Her attentiveness to needs of each student from widely different backgrounds is unparalleled; she goes above and beyond expectations to ensure success. Great detail to professionalism is the prevailing culture in which Dr. Sara Williams guidance is stellar. She provided both direction for each student using objectives given and clear and tangible insights for paths for progress. Mr. Arturo Sustaita provided support in the educational process even though he was not my direct instructor. He has a wealth of knowledge and his consideration for students is shown by his leadership in excellence. Ms. Leah Harris in career services is outstanding. She guides the student into a career with full competence; no stone left unturned on her watch. Much credit should been mentioned about student advisory, in particular Mr. Tawwab Mubarak whose relentless advocacy started the whole process. I am deeply grateful to all who supported me and my success."
