Medical Assistant

Case Manager at Heights and Hills

“I was fortunate to have started the journey of a thousand miles at ASA. With the needed support I was able to obtain an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies, which not only motivated me to complete a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Psychology from Mercy College, but also a master’s degree in social work (MSW) with a concentration in Advanced Generalist Practice and Programming from Columbia University School of Social Work (CUSSW).”

He spends his days actively troubleshooting, servicing, network monitoring and calibrating in a region that spans from New Hampshire to Pennsylvania. Though this work requires great mental fitness, it is not as physically demanding as the work of a field steam engineer. Through his ASA education, he was able to reinvent himself – “I chose a career that requires me to use my brain more than my physical strength” – and now he is working towards becoming a Data Security Analyst.
