Little Rock Medical Assisting Graduate and Employer Review Remington College's Career Training In the course of his busy day at Surgical Associates of Arkansas, Dr. Victor Williams took time out to write to Remington College - Little Rock Campus Director of Education Jennifer Owens, expressing his satisfaction with the performance of extern Loni Johnson. Loni, then a student in our Medical Assisting diploma program, began her internship at Dr. Williams' office in December 2010. Dr. Williams wrote, in part: "Some of Loni's duties have involved scheduling patients, triage assistance, obtaining blood samples, and running diagnostic tests, as well as filing medical papers. Loni has performed these duties excellently and has far exceeded our expectations. She is a quick learner, a great communicator, and a very hard worker. Loni is pleasant to work with and committed to doing the job." This level of commendation was no surprise to those who know and have taught Loni at the Little Rock Campus. Department Chair Lori Stark remembers Loni's dedication: "Loni was a very conscientious student, hard working, and took pride in her accomplishments. She always had a great attitude and worked well with others. I believe Loni will aspire to great things in the field of medical assisting, and she will be a significant contributor to the medical field in general." Medical Assisting Instructor Sharon Narrow echoed Ms. Stark's comments: "Loni was very motivated to succeed, which was evidenced by her GPA and excellent lab skills." Loni Johnson completed the Medical Assisting diploma program in February 2011 with a GPA of 3.91. She is currently working at All for Kids Pediatric Clinic, in Little Rock, and "she is doing very well there!" according to Ms. Owens. Loni herself commented, "I am a single mother and faced many challenges during my schooling. Now, I LOVE my job. I am working in medicine and working with children." As to any advice or words of inspiration for other students, Loni had this to say: "It is so worth the hard work. Spend the extra time studying. Your education is one thing that can never be taken away from you."
