So let’s find out a little more about Iryna!
“I dreamed about going into the medical field since I was a child,” says Iryna. “I’ve a passion to work with those in need. At the age of 15, I made the decision to work in the healthcare industry, but due to certain circumstances it never happened. After sometime I became a college student, but my major was not healthcare related, and therefore I didn’t complete due to lack of interest. My passion was surrounding the medical field, and working with others in need of a higher quality of life. I used to work as Administration Assistant in a dental office and again at a veterinary clinic. After 16-years in multiple jobs, and making an attempt of finding the right career path, I finally decided to make my dreams of working with patients in the medical field come true. I moved from Ukraine to the USA, and needed to learn a new language and gain knowledge of my new surroundings. I was quite serious about choosing an appropriate college that fitted my needs. After extensive research, I chose Bay Area Medical Academy.”

I plan to further my education in the medical field and became an Ultrasound Technician. I’m very grateful to Bay Area Medical Academy for the opportunity to make my dreams of working patients in the medical field come true.”
