Meet the Instructor
Suzette has over 20 years of experience working as a medical assistant in various areas, such as cryosurgery, PFT’s, venipuncture, and more. After gaining experience on the field, she became the owner of ON Call Service in Colorado. The business provided temporary medical assistants to work in doctors’ offices when their full-time assistants were unavailable. She began her work as an educator after becoming the lead instructor for Pima Medical Institute in Denver, where she developed curricula and served on the board. Having developed over 20+ courses in the fields of science, administration, and student success, she is now using her experience to develop curricula for UTC. Suzette loves teaching because she can not only instruct students, but mentor them as they grow in their profession. She also loves medical movies, Iced Guava Passionfruit from Starbucks, and observing teaching methods in foreign countries.
A lifelong learner herself, Suzette holds two bachelor’s degrees, one being a Bachelor of Science in Natural Health from Clayton College and the other a Bachelor of Science in Professional Development from Grand Canyon University. Later, she earned a master’s in education and an Educational Specialist degree from Walden University.
