Kim Lebert, Medical Office Assistant Grad

My name is Kim, a 49-year-old mother of two and a wife. My journey began during COVID, marking the end of my in-home daycare, which I had established over 20 years ago. The pandemic turned my world upside down, leading to the permanent closure of my daycare.

After discussing possibilities with my husband, I made the decision to return to school. Though I’ve always had a passion for the medical field, I wasn’t keen on the long hours of nursing or enduring a lengthy program. That’s when I stumbled upon the Medical Office Assistant (MOA) program at Canadian College and thought, ‘This is perfect for me.’

On my first day of school, nerves and doubts filled me, worried about the potential for failure at my age. However, it turned out to be the perfect program for me. Graduating with a high average in the 90s, I landed my dream job as an MOA at a family practice just minutes from my home. It is such a great feeling waking up every morning excited to go to work. I’ve finally found a career where I excel, one that provides purpose, joy, and a sense of making a difference. I can’t express enough gratitude to Canadian College for the encouragement, knowledge, and strength that led me to where I am today.
