Why I chose Surgical Technology at Miller-Motte College
I chose the career of Surgical Tech for several reasons. I’ve always wanted to be in the medical field in some way. As a kid I always said I wanted to be a brain surgeon. I was also in a car accident at the age of seven where I went through the windshield of the car and my forehead was cut open and had a lot of glass embedded in it. I was pictures of during and after where they had to pull the skin back and remove glass and clean and such. Instead of thinking “ewe, gross” like most seven year olds I, instead thought it was cool. As an adult I have a career. I work with FedEx Office and have since I was 19 (then Kinko’s). I’ve done sales and management with this company. I could continue that career and be very successful, but I want to do more. I want to do something with a purpose, something that can truly and consistently make a difference in the lives of people and the world around me whether they know I had something to do with it or not. I decided to start that change in the Surg Tech field because I do have a career right now as well as being a single mother to 2 daughters. Miller-Motte allowed me to get started very quickly and still be able to work and provide for my family. I do plan to get into the surgical tech field and be successful at that, but I also would like to continue my education and broaden my view. I want to go to medical school. I am not really sure what for specifically yet. I want to be more than the right hand, as Mrs. Woolford says a surg tech is. I want to be the hands.
