Kenny enrolled in Platt College Anaheim’s IT program in 2016 and worked at uBreakiFix. “Between my IT classes, my hands-on repair experience, and the fact that I worked closely with customers, I developed a confidence in my hard skills as well as my soft skills, and built a strong foundation for a future in IT!” said Kenny. Kenny was hired by J. Morita USA, a manufacturer of medical-technical products and a leading supplier in the fields of X-ray diagnostics and endodontics. “It‘s my job to work with the doctor or dentist’s office personnel to get the equipment back up and running ASAP...I spend much of my day on the phone helping medical personnel with IT issues and I find it very rewarding! And the good news is that I can do my job from anywhere!”
Robert moved to California and enrolled in college, but was forced to drop out and work in order to send money home to support his family. A packing job at Amazon offered Amazon’s Career Choice program that provided paid college tuition in select programs. Among those programs was Platt College Riverside’s IT program. While working toward his IT degree, Robert was transferred into Amazon’s IT department and landed the job of Support Technician. Robert graduated from Platt College in November 2019, shortly before the pandemic hit. “What I love about my job is the ability to facilitate positive interaction between our IT professionals and our customers. Being able to provide solutions to issues and remove barriers in the workplace is very satisfying – despite the 6-feet of social distance that we must maintain for now.”
Anne Balver always knew she wanted to be of service within her community. “I’m a very positive person who truly likes to help others. At first, I thought I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, but quickly realized that my dream was to follow my real passion and ultimately work in the field of criminal justice.” Anne graduated from Platt College Alhambra with a degree in Criminal Justice. Her goal is to become a police officer and serve her community. Anne’s advice to others pursuing their goals?…“Always follow your dreams and never give up. Anything is possible.”
Medical Administrative Specialist
Samantha Monsouir thought she had it all together, then came a pandemic. “When COVID-19 hit, like other students, I abruptly made the transition to remote learning. But not only did I have to transition, as a single mom, my 15-year-old daughter, a high school freshman, also had to transition to online classes. It really felt like a whole new, uncertain world for us.” But Samantha persevered and is on track to graduate as a Medical Administrative Specialist (MAS) in August 2020. Samantha is looking forward to starting her externship next month in a private doctor’s office.
Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound)
I attended Platt College Anaheim as a part of the very first graduating Diagnostic Medical Sonography class from 2016-18. I've worked at United Medical Imaging for the past two years and have grown so much...I obtained my Abdomen RDMS license in Feb. 2020 and currently working towards obtaining my RVT. If you find a job you love, you'll never work a day in your life and I have definitely found mine!
