I began instructing phlebotomy 4 years ago, and have since taught laboratory assisting and medical assisting as well. I approached Amy at the Academy of Medical Professions a couple of years ago, and with no outside help, designed and developed the phlebotomy program that is taught through this institution today. I am CPR healthcare provider certified through the American Heart Association, and I have taken business management communication classes at the University of Southern Maine at their Lewiston and Portland campuses.
