Graduate Spotlight


Niki W.

Medical Assistant Graduate

Daytona College was an amazing experience for me. I am a better mother and person because of it. I actually got a job before I even graduated because of the amazing staff at Daytona College that only wanted to help me succeed. I am thriving in my job. I actually work for the place I did my externship at. They wanted me to work for them as soon as my externship was over. Going to Daytona College was one of the best decisions I’ve made.


Isis M.

Medical Assistant Graduate

The experience with Daytona College has been nothing less than exceptional. Getting my Medical Assisting degree wasn’t the hard part, finding a job was. Each step of the way, literally two and a half years of interview after interview with nothing, Daytona College still went above and beyond and I’m now on a career path that I love because they never gave up on me. I’m extremely excited to see where this path leads and what awesome things my future holds. I wouldn’t have gotten there without the help of the teachers and staff. Thanks so much for never giving up on me!

Damaris A.

Medical Assistant Graduate

My name is Damaris, I graduated from Daytona College in 2012, for me it’s a privilege to have my Associates of Science Degree in Medical Assisting. My goals were always to pursue my career since I was a CNA for 11 years. Today I feel so thankful with God and all the career development from Daytona College to helping me find a job. I’m so happy to announce in December 2015, I went to interview for MA position and hired me. Since then, I have been working for Premier Physical Therapy for 4 months, it’s a good environment. I learn a lot and I feel so happy my dream has come true. I encourage everyone to be a part of this amazing story and for myself. It’s never too late to change your life. God bless everyone!!! Thanks Daytona College for helping me in my career.
