Patsy’s Bio

Hi. My name is Patsy Stephens. I have been in the health care field for 30 years. I started out as a Medical assistant working in the lab at St. MARY'S Hospital in Hobart Indiana. I worked there for about 8 years while attending IUN for nursing. while working at St. Mary's I realized that I didn't want to be a nurse. I was very happy as a Medical assistant. I then went to work for Dr. Ashwani Kumar in Internal medicine and Geriatrics. during this time I was offered a teaching position which with Dr. Kumars encouragement I accepted the position and began the most rewarding phase of my life. I love being a Medical assistant and I love taking care of people. I worked briefly in home health care with a stroke patient who passed away. I love what I do and to me being able to help people is the most rewarding aspect of my job. I have had a very difficult year though and I am looking to make some changes in my life. I lost my 29 year old daughter and my mother in a 2 month period. the loss was devastating and I knew right there and then that I wanted to spend my days helping people. taking care of them in what ever way possible. I'm a certified medical assistant. certified phlebotomist an allied health instructor with the American medical technologist. I am a CPR instructor through American heart association
